Hello! Welcome to Ms. Cone's 4th Grade Class Page.

I am a 4th grade English - Language Arts and Social Studies teacher at Meador Elementary School. I graduated from Abilene Christian University and received my Master's in Administration from Lamar University. This is my 14th year of teaching. I have taught many different subjects and content areas for several different grades. I have a dog, Bently, that I love dearly.

I am from a family of educators and fell in love with teaching during high school at a church camp. Being a lifelong learner is a personal goal I have set for myself. I strive to make learning fun, exciting, and interesting for all students.

Reading and Writing are key skills needed by all students. We will practice both of these skills daily and I hope you will practice with your student also.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at scone@willisisd.org.

This year will be great!
