Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Connel

Hi! I can't wait to learn about you, but for now, here is little bit of information about me!

I am married to my best friend, Michael, and we live in Rockwall. We have 2 fur-babies named Lola (13 years) and Piper (6 months). They are both miniature schnauzers and love getting into mischief! In my free time I love hanging out by the pool, shopping at Hobby Lobby, reading, and finding new recipes that are easy enough for me to try. I am the 2nd oldest of 5 children (2 sisters and 2 brothers). Both of my sisters are teachers, too! (Mrs. Blanton at the Elementary school is one of them) 

I grew up in Garland and graduated from Garland High School in 2002, and I received my Master's in Business Administration from Texas A&M University-Commerce.  Prior to teaching, I was a 911 emergency dispatcher for 10 years. I loved the job and meeting so many great people (including my husband), but was so excited to transition into teaching! 

The 2018-2019 school year is my 6th year of teaching, and my 2nd year at Sunnyvale Middle School. I previously worked at Agnew Middle School in Mesquite, where I taught 7th and 8th grade math. It is important to me that my classroom is a safe learning environment and I look forward to a great year of making memories and learning math!
