  • Howdy! My name is Maegan Cook and I am a proud member of the fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2013! I have a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction. The 2017-2018 school year will be my second year to teach at Sunnyale HS; however, I spent three years teaching freshman English I and Pre-AP English I at Dr. Ralph H. Poteet HS in Mesquite, TX. I am very excited to work with the freshman at Sunnyvale HS this coming school year and look forward to all of the exciting things we will be learning in English I and Honors English I! Thanks and Gig'em!
