Mrs. Verna Stone

Computer Lab Instructor
 
 This will be my 10th year at Smith as the computer lab instructor!  My students' successes for 2020-2021 are very important to me.  We will have fun and will work hard!  I love my students to learn from me, but I love to learn from my students as well.  I always learn new things from my students!  We are going to have a fantastic year!
 
I grew up in Mississippi and still have very special ties there.  I received both my Bachelors (Business Education) and my Masters (Vocational Education) from Mississippi State University.  Go Bulldogs!!   
 
My husband, Jeff, and I have been married for 33 years.  We met at MSU and moved to Texas shortly after getting married.  We have four children.  Josh, 29, our oldest, and Jonna, his wife, have recently moved back to Texas from another state, where he used his skills he's learned while getting his Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering; he is working on new technology for cell phones and recently received a patent in his field for his successful project!  Jeremy, 26, is working at The Rock here in Wylie; and Jared, 20, is currently working at Pizza Hut. Judd, 18, graduated from Wylie HS and is now attending the University of North Texas.  He even made the snare line and absolutely loves all things Mean Green!  We now don't have any kids in the Wylie ISD but will always treasure how much WISD poured into all my boys. These boys have kept us entertained and laughing through the years and we love being their parents. 
 
I strive daily to read and learn more technology skills to incorporate into my class.  It's such a fast-paced area of education to keep up with!  When I have extra free time, my hobbies include scrapbooking and genealogy.
