Tawana Cunningham of Gray's Creek High School
Nominated By: Christina Ann Jones
The reason why i believe Ms. Cunningham deserves the teacher of the week award is because, this woman works extremely hard and doesn't get the credit I think she deserves. And I'm not just saying that. "Mama Cunningham" is an extraordinary theatre teacher, but on top of that she runs the school musical and all the plays that we do as classes. This year she even took time from the multiple plays she was directing and helped out with stage work for Stoney Point's Trail of Terror. She cares for all her students like they are her own kids, that is why most of us call her mama. She strives those kids who are shy and hold back to come out of their shells and bring a little art to the world. Cunningham may be a tough teacher, but if you ask anyone around school they will tell you that by the time they are done with that class they have learned how to stand up, be brave, and capture the character inside of them. She is a wonderful romodel, an inspiring performer, and an all around fun "wackadoodle".
