TEACHERS OF THE WEEK
Mr. Andrew Vuong (5th Grade)

Hello Roberts family! This is my seventh year teaching and my third at Roberts. I am a born and raised Houstonian (Pearland is close enough to Houston, right?) and despite hating the heat and humidity, I love Houston and Texas so much I have a hard time picturing living anywhere else. After teaching middle school math for four years, I finally made the decision to teach elementary school. I could not have made a better decision than to start that elementary school journey at Roberts. This community has been so welcoming and awe-inspiring, from the outreach and events put on and attended by the families, the passion from all the staff, and the love of school from the students, Roberts has felt like a safe little haven for me. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, traveling, crafting, and being self-indulgent (I love a massage and a spa trip). Thank you for the honor, I truly appreciate the recognition.

Ms. Teneika L. Punch (Kindergarten)

I am an 18-year teacher of Roberts Elementary. I have loved being a part of the Roberts community and seeing it grow. When I started straight out of U of H, I felt like Roberts was a dream school and I still do! I love capturing the memories of our school in the yearbook each year. When I'm not putting my heart into my little ones, I am working out with my amazing daughter, Tabitha. I love physical fitness and mental health. Our favorite thing to do besides hit the gym is make Target runs!
