My name is Vernita L. Mason. I received my bachelors and master’s degrees from Sam Houston State University, Go Bearcats!! My first teaching position was in the Houston Independent School District. I taught fourth and fifth grade at Edgar Allen Poe Elementary. I was a member of the CBLT committee and team leader. Fort Bend Independent School District has brought me much joy. I am presently teaching first grade at Walter Moses Burton Elementary. Last year I taught fourth grade and I taught fifth grade for several years. I was fifth grade team leader, a member of CBLT, Science and Math committee, Diversity committee, Discipline committee, and Gifted/Talented committee.
