Mrs. Tonya Kennedy

Hello!  I feel blessed to be working as the Gifted and Talented Specialist at both NeSmith and McClendon.  

I have just completed 15 years of service with CISD!  Overall, I am beginning my 34th year of teaching and have taught every grade from K-12. Whatever the grade level at hand, my career philosophy has always centered around helping students develop the skills and imagination needed to be successful in their classrooms and in society.

I can be reached by e-mail at  My conference time is from 11:45-12:45.  Friday conferences can be scheduled at a time that is most convenient for you.
