About Me

Connie Cox

My name is Connie Cox and I am so excited to be your 5th grade science and social studies teacher this year!  I am a graduate of Northwestern State University of Louisiana and TAMU-College Station. I have taught science for 25 years in 5th-12th grade. I am a science nerd and am passionate about instilling a love of science into my students.

I have a sweet little grandson in McKinney which spurred us to move to the area from the Fort Hood area.

Cox, Connie
