Welcome to First Grade!
Welcome to Mrs. Mauk's First Grade!
Dear Parents,
It is with much joy that I welcome you to 1st grade at Birnham Woods Elementary School. I am very excited about this school year! My goal is for the children in my class to succeed and are happy in doing so.

I believe that each child is gifted in his or her own way and I am excited to get to know your child and learn their stregnths. I am dedicated to making this a busy, productive, fun-filled and terrfic year for us all. I will be communicating with you often in your child's folder. This folder will include classroom activities, schoolwork, school events, parent readers, and other activities.

Just a little background about myself-I was born in Hamilton, Ohio, and moved to Texas in the 6th grade.  I attended and graduated from Conroe ISD. I have been married for 12 years to my wonderful husband, J.D. We are proud parents of an 8 year old daughter named Morgan, and a 5 year old daughter named Elise. Morgan is in 3rd grade here at BWE, and Elise is in Kindergarten here at BWE as well.


I attended Baylor University in Waco, and this will be my 8th year of teaching. I have taught first grade and Pre-K. I have loved each part of my journey, but heart is truly happy in the first grade classroom.

My hobbies are reading, cooking, and being with family. I also enjoy traveling, being crafty, and watching Baylor Football!

I am so excited to embark on this journey together! You will not believe how much your child will grow this year. We have so much planned, and I can't wait to get to know you and your family. Please don't ever hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns.  You can always reach me at jmauk@conroeisd.net.

Warm Regards,
Jennifer Mauk
