Hello! I am Mrs. Cones and am so excited to begin a brand new year here at Canyon Pointe as the Math Instructional Specialist. I grew up in Tomball and graduated from Tomball High School. I am also a graduate of Texas A&M University (Whoop!) and love the Aggies! Helping kids to understand, and sparking their interest in math is what I enjoy! This is my ninth year of teaching in Tomball ISD. I have a wonderful family including my husband of 17 years and two children that we adore and keep us very busy. I am passionate about teaching and love using my interactive Smart Board and hands on activities to help me create a fun and exciting learning environment.
