Welcome to Cornerstone Elementary!
My name is Tracy Derr. I was born and raised in Sugar land. I am the middle child of five. My parents still live in the house that I grew up in. We are a close family and enjoy family gatherings. I attended Lakeview Elementary, Sugar Land Middle School, and Dulles High School.
My husband is Terry. We have been married for 31 years. We have two children; our son Trevor is 28 and is a graduate of the University of Houston. Trevor is married and lives with his wife Leah in Bali, Indonesia. Our daughter Taylor is 25. She is a graduate of Texas A&M and UTMB Galveston. She is a nurse at the Jeannie Seely Hospital in Galveston. She and her husband Spencer live in Galveston.
I am a graduate of Sam Houston State University. I moved back to the Sugar Land area and began my first job at Lamar CISD. I taught kindergarten for ten years. I taught pre-k for three years at Kingsbridge Christian Academy. In 2001, I began teaching in FBISD. I taught six years teaching first grade at Barrington Place Elementary. I have been teaching here at Cornerstone Elementary since the doors opened. I have been teaching for 32 years.
I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the beach, biking, jogging, swimming and gardening. We also have several pets: two horses, Missy and Cheeto and our rabbit Bun-Bun. I will share many stories about my family and our pets throughout the year.
