Welcome to First Grade! Hi, my name is Jennifer Samoheyl and I am a First Grade teacher at Cornerstone Elementary. This will be my 13th year of teaching in FBISD and my 7th year at CSE. I have taught Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade. I have also worked as a Reading Recovery teacher and I am ESL certified and GT trained. I love to teach and help students blossom into independent learners and to develop a passion for learning!
I was born and raised in Houston and graduated from UT. I am happily married to my high school sweetheart, Blake, and we have two children: Avery and Aiden. Avery is 4 years old and Aiden will turn 3 years old shortly after the start of the school year. We also have 2 fur babies at home. We enjoy trips to the zoo, playing outside, and reading books together. In my free time, I enjoy crafting, cooking and baking, and spending time with loved ones.
