Meet Mrs. Runge! (Rung-E)
Hello! My name is Tiffany Runge (some of you know me as Miss Stone). I just got married last summer. I am a 3rd grade Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at Carpenter Elementary. This will be my 10th year teaching and my 4th year in 3rd grade.
I grew up in Deer Park and graduated from Deer Park High School in 2006. I then went to Sam Houston State University where I majored in Elementary Education because I always knew I wanted to be a teacher like my mom. After graduating from college, I moved back home to Deer Park to start my teaching career. I first was a substitute and tutor at San Jacinto Elementary for one year. When a position opened at Carpenter Elementary, I was offered to teach second grade. I taught second grade my first year. Then I moved to first grade where I taught for five years. I absolutely loved teaching first grade! After five years in first grade, I was asked to join the third grade team. I was nervous to teach "big" kids but have loved every minute of my time in 3rd grade as well! I am looking forward to another great year in 3rd grade!
In my spare time, I like to spend time with my husband, family and friends, coach cheerleading, work out, scrapbook, and run with my dog Copper.
I believe all students have the ability to learn and succeed in the classroom. We will work together this year to create a classroom community where all students feel loved and welcomed. In my classroom we will be risk-takers, friends, helpers, readers, writers, learners, family, and much more! Let's get this year started!
