Mrs. Erin Maness
Mrs. Maness is originally from New Orleans but grew up in suburban Atlanta. She attended the University of Georgia, so she is clearly a huge SEC fan. After graduation, she moved to Austin where she taught PreK for a couple of years before moving miles away to the Gulf Coast and switching to fourth grade. While on the coast, Mrs. Maness attended the University of South Alabama as a graduate student. She eventually moved back to Texas and has been teaching at Cottonwood Creek ever since, as both a fourth grade and a second grade teacher. Mrs. Maness lives with her husband, daughter, and Wally (the dog) in Hutto. She is super excited to be a part of the Hippo Nation!!!
