My name is Alayna LiaKos. I am a 1st Grade Teacher at Cornerstone Elementary. I'm a 2007 graduate of Texas State University. I began my teaching career in 2008. My experience includes 9 years of Kindergarten, one year abroad teaching Kindergarden and 1st in Porto, Montenegro, and 1 year teaching 5th Grade Math/Science. I now have the pleasure of teaching 1st Grade! When I'm not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family campling, hiking, biking, playing tennis, traveling,watching sports, and being outdoors!
I would also like to introduce you to my student teacher, Ms. Yagali:
I am Ilknur Yagli. I am a senior at the University of Houston. My major is Education/Human Development and Family Studies. I was born and grew up in Istanbul, which is a pretty attractive and fascinating city in Turkey. I can describe my personality as being an optimistic person, so I always think the best possible things will happen, and hope for it even if it's not likely. I like to learn new things in my life. I have two children who are seventeen and eleven years old. To be a good mother, I always try to be a role model for my children. Some of my hobbies are driving, reading, and listening to classical music. Also, I have been a volunteer teacher at the YDC Saturday School for ten years that covers elementary school children.
