A Quick Bio:
My name is Cynthia Anderson (parents, please feel free to call me Cyndi) and I teach 6th Grade World Cultures. I have been blessed to be a part of Lovejoy ISD for ten years and I'm excited to start my eleventh year in the district. I have been teaching for 13 years and love the way teaching allows me to be a lifelong learner. I haven't always been a social studies teacher, but began teaching ELAR. My first degree was in Journalism (TAMU '92) and I still love helping others to write. You will find your student will need to use those writing skills in World Cultures and I look forward to helping them grow in this area.
On a personal note, my husband, Donnie, and I have four children. The oldest is Camarie (22), the second daughter is Maddie (19), third in line is Abigail (18), and my baby boy, Connor, is now 11 and a sixth grader here at SCIS.
I love to travel and complete service/mission projects. I've helped run the Czexas English Camp in Czech Republic for ten years, and I love working on various mission projects in the summer. I've lived overseas in Singapore and Taiwan and I have a serious case of xenophilia.
My Teaching Goals:
It is my goal to spark a passion for history, culture, and both national and global citizenship in my students. Participating in the education of our future leaders is a huge responsibility and one I take very seriously. The next generation of leaders are in our classroom and I have faith in their future.
I believe in strong communication and partnerships between teachers, students, and parents, so I encourage you all to feel free to contact me by email or phone whenever you have questions or concerns. As a parent myself, I want your child to have the best possible academic experience which is rigorous, relevant, and reflective.
I also believe in getting to know my students in depth. The more I know about each student and the more they know about me, the better we can collaborate and learn together.
Can’t wait to get to know each of you!
