Ms. Cunningham

Hi everyone!! My name is Ms. Cunningham and I will be the new Middle School Health and PE teacher and will also coach 8th grade boys and girls basketball and 5th and 6th grade boys basketball. I am so excited to get the 2021-2022 school year going!!

About Me:

I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington with my parents and younger brother. I attended Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane while playing a variety of sports in Middle School and High School. I ended up getting a scholarship to play collegiate basketball at Montana State University Billings. I had a great experience in the classroom and on the basketball court at MSUB. My sophomore year we made it to the Elite 8 and had a great run. In the classroom, I graduated with a degree in Health and Human Performance with a teaching option (K-12) as well as getting a minor in Coaching which I have a huge passion for. I completed my student teaching at Billings West High School and learned a ton from the many PE teachers there. While I was student teaching, I also coached the 8th grade boys and girls basketball teams at Riverside Middle School. I had an awesome experience coaching them and it made me realize how big of an impact a teacher/coach can have on students. After graduating in December 2020, I got a Long Term Assignment at Highland Elementary while thier PE teacher was on maternity leave. I am super excited to join the Shepherd community and get to know every single one of you!!!
