Hello and welcome to my 6th grade math class! This is my second year teaching at China Spring Intermediate school and my 11th year of teaching. I am a resident of China Spring for the past 22 years. I am married to my husband Johnny (24 years!) and I have one daughter, Kayla, who is in nursing school at MCC . I also have a step son, Kyle Elkins. Kyle and his wife Jessica are both teachers and coaches in the China Spring school district. We are a family of China Spring Cougars! 
I look forward to a great year of learning and growing. 
This year I will be using a new messaging system for parent communication called Bloomz. Please use the code below to join the class group for your student. You can use a smart phone (there is an Android or iOS app) or your computer. I would like to be able to communicate important information this way. Of course, you can always reach me through my school email at telkins@chinaspringisd.net.
