Ms. Cheyenne Drake
Second Grade Teacher
My name is Cheyenne Drake and I am so excited about starting my second year teaching with these amazing second graders. I grew up in central Texas but got to Plano as fast as I could! I graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Early Child Development. I student taught in 2nd and 4th grade and found a love for teaching during that time. My goal is to provide a fun and engaging learning environment that fosters growth.
Outside of school, I spend a lot of time with my 3 dogs, and my family, and doing crafts. Coming from a small town and moving into a bigger city area, I am always looking for new things to discover and places to go!
