My name is Mrs. Tolman and I am a teacher with the Brownsville Independent School District. I previously did social services at both an elementary and high school campus with a nonprofit agency which motivated me to pursue a career in education. I come from a family of educators who firmly believed that an education never ends.
During the summer of 2021, I was certified as a Yoga Instructor with Breathe for Change. A program that is designed to create Social Emotional Learning Facilitators and teaches how to guide trauma informed yoga. We have successfully been able to bring yoga into our campus and currently offer five yoga classes before and after school. It has been amazing to see the practice come to fruition on our campus.
I have completed my Masters of Science Education in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment, along with the Integrated Leadership Principal Preparation Program. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction. I am also serving as a Teach Plus intern for the 2021-2022 school year.
Our Class Mission
My mission is that you, my students will become more than factual learners, rather proactive socially aware 21st century citizens and leaders capable of breaking diversity barriers. The mission is designed to empower you, the student, to go beyond the books and the knowledge that you encounter in the classroom and become aware of the social impact that you are capable of.
