Mrs. McKenna Tooke
I am so excited for my fifth year of teaching and my second year at Wylie East High School! I started teaching in Lubbock, Texas, where I also graduated from Texas Tech University in 2017. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with teaching certifications in EC-12 Art, 7-12 English, & EC-12 English as a Supplemental Language. Prior to moving to Lubbock for college, I spent the entirety of my education from kindergarten through twelfth grade in Wylie! I started as a Birmingham Bear & finished as a Wylie East Raider, where I was part of the second graduating class.
In my spare time, I love hanging out with my husband Alex (aka Mr. Tooke) & our pup Bonnie at home, reading books, studying art & painting, movies, drinking tea, and baking!
These are a few of my favorite things...
