Charlie and Charlotte Mooneyham spent the majority of their teaching and administrative careers devoted to students in the Frisco Independent School District, giving a combined total of 64 years to the schools and the community. Charlotte taught reading and history, served as principal of Acker Elementary School for 11 years and also served as the gifted coordinator. Charlie has always loved sports and spent many years as a coach, physical education teacher and a loving mentor to students who faced challenges. Charlie served as Frisco Middle School principal for seven years, and also made students smile as their P.E. teacher at Acker.
Both are still actively involved with students and learning. In 2005, Charlotte received her doctorate degree and now works part time for the Child and Family Resource Clinic at the University of North Texas College of Education, along with teaching graduate level classes for the university and supervising interns in an alternative certification program for special education. Charlie can still be heard as the “voice of FISD” or clock keeper at many middle school sporting events. He has taken a very active role in the Association of Frisco Retired School Personnel and they are also members of the Frisco Heritage Association, Denton County Historical Association and the Choctaw Nation.
Their children Daniel and Mari both attended Frisco schools from kindergarten through graduation. Mari is a teacher and coach in FISD and Daniel taught at Tulane and Loyola Universities in New Orleans before being displaced by the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The Mooneyhams have truly been part of building a legacy of learners and leaders.
