My name is Tonya Woods Gage. I have worked for Royal ISD for over 18 years. I have taught 2nd grade, I’ve been the Gifted & Talented Teacher, Reading Coach, & most recently the Educational Diagnostician for transition. I am a Royal Falcon, I graduated from Royal High School.
I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and my Master’s Degree in Special Education from Prairie View A&M University.
I am married and we have two wonderful young men. My husband and sons are all graduates of Royal High School. We enjoy sports and traveling when possible.
I am excited to continue my journey with Royal as the Director of Special Services. I look forward to working with a wonderful group of people within the district and the community.
