Hello! My name is Tammie Craig and this is my second year at Buckner Fanning School at Mission Springs. I love our wonderful school and feel blessed and honored to be a part of the BFSMS team partnering with parents to love, nurture and educate each unique child. I received my elementary teaching degree from Texas A&M University. I taught K-2nd grade for five years with NISD in San Antonio before working at home taking care of our three sons. I have fifteen years of experience teaching all grade levels in our homeschooling coop and various classes at our church. Teaching is truly a passion for me. I work to engage students in learning through thoughtful, fun, hands-on lessons which include meaningful discussions and small group work. I believe strongly in helping students discover their God given passions, talents and gifts to use according to His purposes and to encourage them to glorify God in all they do, say and think. What a privilege it is to integrate a Christian worldview into every aspect of teaching, guiding children to think critically about the world through the lens of their Christian faith. It’s my desire for students to see God’s hand in every subject and topic we study and discover. I am overjoyed to share and model the love of Christ each day with my precious fourth graders.
I met my wonderful husband David at Texas A&M, and we’ve been married for 29 years. We have three dear sons that grew up all too quickly! Alex recently graduated from Texas A&M’s Mays Business School and is “adulting” in Houston. Ryan is a college junior pursuing a degree in digital media and design and Jacob is a sophomore in college.
When I’m not teaching, I’m busy with my business Tammie Craig Photography. I enjoy photographing families, children, babies, couples and weddings! I love the creative aspect of photography and I’m forever looking at the quality of light and how it illuminates God’s magnificent creation. I also love to read, run, bird watch, hike, travel, and spend time with my family and our puppy. Teddy Truffle, otherwise known as “Little Brown Puppy” is our adorable rescue puppy. Another absolute favorite activity is laughing! I enjoy attending Christian comedy shows and laughing till my sides hurt. Tim Hawkins is one of my favorite comedians. If you haven’t heard him you should look him up on Youtube. I love my classroom to be full of joy and laughter, a place where all feel loved, included and treasured How blessed I am to spend my day with creative, fun and amazing fourth graders!
