Dallas ISD Teacher of the Year Finalist Spotlight: Mary Nunley from CityLab High School


A campus lead teacher and founding math teacher at CityLab High School, Mary Nunley excels as both a classroom teacher and teacher-leader. According to her principal Lynn Smith, Mary is a master at building positive relationships with colleagues and students, a talent that has earned her the trust of 100% of stakeholders on the downtown campus. She entered the teaching profession as a 2012 DFW Teach For America corps member following graduation from Lehigh University and has since earned both a Master’s in Education with a STEM focus from Southern Methodist University and a Master’s in Educational Leadership from the University of North Texas as a member of The Future STEM Leaders Academy. While she enjoys supporting the learning and teaching of her peers through collaboration and feedback, her favorite time of day is the time she spends in the classroom engaging her 12th grade statistics students using a project-based learning model.
