Sunday Roberts

PK4 Beginning School Assistant

I have over 12 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Of those 12 years, 7 years have been spent in the Special  Education, Inclusion and Social Development environment. I am a BOI, and after moving away and starting our family, having two wonderful boys Colby and Tucker (both now in college), my husband and I have returned to the island where my heart belongs. I love being with kids, listening to the seagulls, and being with my dog Rudder.

Leah Tovar

PK3 Beginning School Assistant

Born and raised in Galveston TX, I attended TES at the age of 3 yrs. old and finished 8th grade here, thereafter graduating from Ball High School, taking college courses at Galveston College, & earning many certifications. Very active in our church community, my husband & I serve as Children's Ministry Leaders. My heart & dedication towards children has always been a constant for me & I enjoy seeing the children in my church light up with the knowledge & creative thinking they have towards learning more about God!! Working over 10 years at UTMB, my husband and I decided after having our daughter, Sofia, that I would be a stay-at-home mom. It was the best decision, as enjoying and loving every minute of being able to enjoy my daughter for 5years was a moment in time I will never forget! We decided to put Sofia at TES starting Kindergarten in the Fall of 2017.
