Who was your favorite teacher growing up and why? Ms. Bales was my 5th grade teacher - she made each of us a handmade wooden sign with our name on it. I still have it on my bookshelf in my office. She brought learning to life and made every student know they had skills and talents

Do you have a favorite quote, song or saying? If so, please share why and what this means to you!

My favorite song is "Your Smiling Face" by James Taylor. My dad wrote it in my baby book - and I will ALWAYS think of him when I hear it

What is your favorite dish from the school cafeteria either now, or when you were growing up? As a child, Fish Sticks. I never was able to have them at home, so they seemed like a delicacy.

What would your staff and students be surprised to learn about you? I love the beach, but am scared of the ocean.

Thank you, Ms. Funes for your commitment to students and staff and for leading with passion and vision!
