About Mrs. Saheb
Welcome! This is my 15th year in the classroom.  I began my teaching career in Spring ISD teaching 4th grade ELA/SS. After 3 years, I moved to Klein ISD where I taught 5th grade ELA/SSfor 3 years at Theiss Elementary, and taught 4th grade ELA/SS for 8 years at Northampton Elementary. I am thrilled to be teaching 3rd grade at Buckalew this year.
I am married and have two wonderful boys. Tyler will begin kindergarten this year here at Buckalew. Jordan, who is 4 years old, cannot wait to attend kindergarten here next year! We are so blessed to be part of the Buckalew family!
From a young age, I knew I was destined to become a teacher. After graduating from The Woodlands High School, I attended Stephen F. Austin University to persue my dream of becoming a teacher. I love being in the classroom with children reading, writing, discussing, discovering, investigating, sharing, and collaborating.
I'm looking forward to a great year!
