Mrs. Tonya Whatley

Hello! My name is Tonya Whatley.  I am so excited to be teaching at Little Elm ISD this year.  I will be teaching first grade this year.  I have been teaching  for twenty-five years. I received my Bachelors of Science degree from East Texas State University. I have taught first grade, second grade, fourth grade, and a reading pull-out class. I have my ESL and GT certifications. 

I just moved to Little Elm last year. I am married to Brian Whatley. I have three stepchildren: Jordan, Graci, and Serena. I am so excited to be part of the Little Elm family.  I will be teaching at Brent Elementary this year.  

I have a passion for teaching students to read. I can't wait to meet you and your child.  I will do everything I can to help your child have an enjoyable learning experience.  It is my goal to give your child the tools needed to meet their individual academic goals.
