Mrs. Cunningham - Room 130


Hello! My name is Mrs. Cunningham and I am delighted to be your child’s first grade teacher. I have been teaching in the Utica City School District for several years. I've taught 6th grade, 3rd grade, and 1st grade. I am married to a teacher who also works in the Utica City School District. We have one daughter and two very big spoiled dogs. In addition to my family, I am passionate about teaching and helping students develop the skills they need to have in order to become life long learners.  It's important to me that your child comes to school every day feeling safe, happy, and comfortable in our classroom and school environment. 

We have a great year ahead of us! We will be reviewing a lot, learning even more, and of course having tons of fun along the way. It is very important that you play an active role in your child’s education. I encourage you to take part in activities that reinforce what your child is learning in school. By working together we can make this a very successful school year for your child. I will send home letters on a regular basis to inform you of events in our school and classroom as well as communicate with parents daily via class dojo.

Your child will be bringing home various forms that need to be completed and brought back to school as soon as possible. Feel free to contact me at anytime throughout the year with any questions or concerns you might have at 792-2167 or you can write me a note. I am also available to speak in person before and after school.
