My name is Ms. Fontana. I am originally from a small town in west Texas called Coahoma. When I graduated from Coahoma High School I made the short move to Lubbock where I attended Texas Tech University! After graduated from TTU I got a job in Lubbock where I stayed for 3 years. I loved almost everything about Lubbock but it left me wanting more all the time, so I made the move here to Plano in the summer of 2021!
