Hi! My name is Keri Ruchti, and I am the ESL instructional Specialist at Canyon Pointe Elementary.


I graduated from Texas A&M University in 2003 with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Whoop!) and married my husband, Justin, in 2006. We have two kiddos of our own, Gavin (6th grade) and Addison (3rd grade). I began my teaching career in Cy-Fair ISD in 2004, and prior to moving to Tomball ISD, I also worked in Klein ISD. I began at CPES as a 4th grade teacher in 2018 and this is my first year as the ESL Specialist! the Tomball community is my family, and I truly feel blessed to work here.


Now, as the ESL Specialist, I get to work with small groups of students at every grade level helping to increase their proficiency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English.  I plan lessons to help students learn new vocabulary and excel in their very rigorous classwork.  I also work with teachers to develop lessons that incorporate teaching strategies to help students retain all the new words and concepts they need to know to be successful at school. I get to work with students and teachers all over the building and see what wonderful things happen here. Interesting fact...there are over 10 languages represented on our campus alone!


In addition to working with our students who speak languages other than English, I meet with small reading groups to further literacy instruction. All of the awesome things I have the privilege of doing here at Canyon Pointe make me grateful and excited to show up to work every day!
