Hi there! My name is Lana Thornhill.
This is my first year at Sunnyvale ISD, but my 11th year as an educator. I was born and raised near Cleveland, Ohio and graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Toledo. Then, I took a leap of faith and moved 1,100 miles to Dallas in the summer of 2012. I have learned so much since I have been here. My favorite thing about education is watching my students grow throughout the school year, not just academically, but socially as well.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am married to my husband, Ben. We have 3 amazing children: my son, Benjamin (4), my daughter Leslie (4 months) and my step-daughter Londyn (11). We also have a 6-year-old Siberian Husky, King who loves to explore!
I enjoy traveling, shopping, swimming, watching movies, and attempting to cook. :)
Please do not hesitate to contact me this school year with questions and concerns. I am here to help!
