Linda Buono

Third Grade Teacher

I began teaching at Kocurek in 2006- the same year I moved here. I received my degree from Texas Christian University making me a Horned Frog! Go Purple! I am married with 5 children - 4 sons and a daughter. I love teaching Reading and Math. My hobby is bird watching. I love figuring out what kind of bird it is if I don't already know it. I am so excited about teaching 3rd Grade.
