All About Mrs. Cones
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 11th year of teaching in Tomball ISD. I have a wonderful family including my husband of 20 years and two children that we adore and keep us very busy. My son attends Texas Lutheran University where he is studying business and playing collegiate baseball, and my daughter attends Tomball High School where she plays basketball and raises livestock through the FFA program. I am passionate about teaching and love bringing out the "inner mathematician" in each of my students!
