Ms. Betsy Cunningham


                                 Welcome to the 2019-20 year in Science.

 I am honored to be your child's Science teacher. In Science we will be covering various content.

                                                    I'm so... excited to get going!

   A little bit about me - 

     I grew up in Detroit, Michigan and attended college at Central Michigan University. After I graduated, there were no teaching positions available in Michigan. So... I applied all over the United States and Texas is where I landed. I taught for two years in Austin and then started in New Braunfels. I've been teaching in New Braunfels for 33 years. I started at Carl Schurz in Special Education. I then moved to 3rd grade at Walnut Springs (then it was Memorial Elementary.) I've graduated from Elementary school and am at NBMS. This will be my 12th year teaching Science at NBMS. I simply LOVE it !

    My Family - I have three grown children and am very proud of their accomplishments. Stephen, 30, is an Architect and works at a firm in Austin. Suzanne, 26, a fashion major, works here in NB at Celebrations. Sarah 24, is in film and digital media production. She works for the Spurs ! They are all on their own and my life as an "empty nester" has begun.

   I'm an avid sports fan and talk to the kids about games and what's happening in the sports world regularly. I am a fan of the outdoors. I enjoy camping, swimming, kayaking and anything on the water or at the beach. I was a lifeguard for 15 years.      We're going to have a great year ! Go Unicorns !
