Woodeshick, a teacher at Groves Elementary School, was 25.

Dear Groves Elementary School Families,
We are devastated to share tragic news. Fourth grade teacher Amy Woodeshick died last night after a car accident on Kingwood Drive, where the storm caused trees to snap and fall.
Amy, 25, graduated from Concordia Lutheran High School in Tomball and the University of Houston. She completed student teaching at Shadow Forest Elementary School, taught 6th grade English at Humble Middle School last year, and was a Groves fourth grade teacher this school year. She loved helping children learn and grow, and she made students’ school days bright.
We are in contact with her parents, and service arrangements are pending. Counselors will be available on campus Monday for any staff or students needing support.
Thank you for keeping Ms. Woodeshick’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
Dr. Brian Peters
