My name is Nancy Weaver.  This is my 10th year serving as the Math Specialist here at Towenwest Elementary. I have spent the last 34 years teaching students and working with teachers. My first six years I taught 1st and 2nd grades at a private school in Houston. I then made the decision to teach public school in Fort Bend ISD.  For my first 8 years, I taught 2nd and 1st grades at Ridgemont Elementary and Mission West Elementary. In the nineties, technology exploded in our schools and in our personal lives and I decided to become an Instructional Technology Specialist. These were the early days of personal computers and email. I spent several years helping teachers and students integrate technology into the four content areas and assisted with making technology a part of their everyday lives. I later made the decision to become a math specialist. I became a math specialist to assist teachers and students in learning to love math and to build deeper understanding of numeracy. So many adults and children find math difficult and I want to make math stress-free for all students. Elementary teachers need to believe teaching math is as enjoyable and rewarding as teaching reading.  As a Math Specialist, I work with teachers to plan math lessons, gather math materials as needed, and co-teach and model math lessons in the classrooms. I analyze and update math data and use data to help teachers improve curriculum decisions. I am a math interventionist (kindergarten through fifth grade) and work with students in small groups. In addition, I serve as a math liaison between the central administration and the building staff. My job here at TWE is very rewarding and I love it.

My name is Candy Ewert. After graduating from the University of Houston, I began teaching 4th and 5th grades at Mission Bend Elementary before coming to Townewest in 1999. My current position is that of an English as a Second Language Specialist. This position involves working with students, in grades 1 through 5, who need a little “extra” support. I love to see how successful my students have become! It is very rewarding to see their confidence and abilities grow after working together. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my 2 granddaughters. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, shopping with friends, and playing with my dog, Murphy.
