Mrs. Cindy : Curriculum Coordinator, Honors Math Teacher
I have been in education for over 33 years. I earned my Bachelors of Science with a Minor in Mathematics from Stephen F Austin University In Texas in 1981 and continued my education at Texas A&M and Rice University furthering my study in Gifted & Talented and Advanced Placement, Technology, and Administrative Leadership. Over the years I have served as a University Interscholastic League Coach, Student Council Adviser, Cheer-leading Coach, Volleyball and Track Coach, Math Department Chair, Technology Coordinator, Title I Coordinator, District and Campus Leadership Team Member, Lead Teacher, Mentor and New Teacher Supervisor, Peer Assistance Leadership Coach, and of course my favorite a classroom teacher. I moved to California 5 years ago and made my home here at Bridges where I have been teaching the middle school math classes. I have watched the school grow and transition over the past 5 years. It has been a journey that has taught me so many life lessons. As a teacher my goal was to always make sure that I gave my kids just a little bit more, left them a little bit happier than they came to school, a little smarter than when they arrived. I never dreamed that in this journey that I would be the one so full of joy and so rewarded. The students and the community here have embraced me and have taught me so much about life and about learning. I believe all children do learn every day through what we say and do, even when we think they are not looking. I believe it is critical that we set a good example by modeling tolerance and compassion. I am so happy that I have found a home that has similar values of educating the Whole Child.
My favorite thing about Bridges is: I like that everyone is trying to do their very best for students. Kids come first!
When I’m not at Bridges I like to spend time with my family, play golf, and take my dog out for long walks.
