Welcome back to school!  I hope everyone enjoyed their summer break.  I am happy to be back to school and I am looking forward to an exciting year!  I know we will learn so much together.

    This upcoming year will be my 22nd year to teach!  Wow!  How time flies!  I spent the first ten years of my teaching career in Kindergarten, followed by eleven years in 1st grade.  I am excited to continue my teaching passion of reading by joining the SRP teachers in our district!  

    I began my teaching career in Phoenix, AZ where I taught for two years.  It was there that I met and married my wonderful husband, Paul.  I then taught in El Paso, TX for three years while Paul completed his military career.  We made the move to the Austin area in 2000 and couldn’t be happier.

     I grew up in a small Indiana town fairly close to Indianapolis.  Although I was raised to be a “Hoosier”, I chose to follow my father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and attend Purdue University.  I graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.  GO BOILERS!!  I am very enthusiastic about all Big Ten sporting events!

    My household is quite busy with our three wonderful and very active sons!  Bryan is a Senior at Vista Ridge!  Just saying that brings tears...maybe tears of joy...to my eyes!!  Brendan is an 8th grader at Henry Middle School.  He is my all sports boy.  Last but not least is the youngest, Brant.  He will be starting his middle school career this year.  He is my history buff and soccer enthusiast!   

I am looking forward to a new and exciting school year! Please visit Mason's SRP Website for information about our program.  Don't hesitate to call or email if you have any questions or concerns.

   

Sincerely,

Tonia Cunningham
