Mrs. Tera Funicello
My name is Tera Funicello. I am excited to continue my journey as part of the Prosper ISD community as a third grade teacher at Cockrell Elementary. This year will be my 23rd year in education. My career as a teacher began after graduating magna cum laude from Texas Woman's University in 1998. I began teaching that fall at Valley Creek Elementary in McKinney with my first teaching position where I taught 2nd grade. In 2001, I had the opportunity to open a new self-sustainable school in McKinney, Arthur H. McNeil Elementary. During my 18 years at McNeil, I taught 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades.
I was born and raised in McKinney, and currently reside there with my husband and our two fur babies, Sophie and Max. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy baking, spending time with family and friends, dancing and crafting. I feel blessed to be working in Proper ISD as part of the Cockrell Champion family! I am looking forward to a great 2020-2021 school year!
