Introducing Mrs Stephanie Cusack, PE Teacher
From Mrs. Cusack . . .
My name is Stephanie Cusack and I am excited to be the Bennett Bear PE teacher! I was born and raised in Tucson, AZ. I graduated with a B.A in Communications from the University of Arizona in 1998. I went back to school to receive my teaching certification in EC-6 and my EC-12 certification in physical education. This is my third year working for McKinney ISD in physical education.
I have a wonderful husband, Ed and two beautiful daughters: Addison and Courtney. If you don’t see us on the soccer field, we are probably at swim practice or working on our homework. We love playing with all our family critters, reading books, and watching movies.
I am so honored to be your student’s PE teacher! I’m looking forward to building healthy habits that last a lifetime for our future leaders!
Thank you PTO for sponsoring our BMX show. The BMX riders talked about the importance of being healthy and drug free as well as treating others with respect.
