All School News New Faculty Spotlight Robert Roach- Mr. Roach joins Woodlands Christian as our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade science teacher. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education and a Masters in Elementary Education from Sam Houston State University. Mr. Roach has 32 years of classroom experience having taught in the gifted and talented program of the Aldine ISD, at the Sacred Heart School in Houston and at The Woodlands Preparatory Academy. “Classroom demonstrations and hands on activities are not for the sake of saying you use a ‘hands on approach‘ but for the fact that reaching all modalities enables students to connect both sides of the brain, enjoy what they are seeing and then want to see and learn more on how things work.”
