Michel, Cynthia

I am beginning my 17th year at Ridgepoint this year. I have taught 5th and 6th grade during those years, with the last three being a 5/6 combo. The thing I enjoy most about teaching is that no day is the same! I never know what challenge the kids will throw at me. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, playing with my dogs & cats (look below to see their sweet little faces), hanging out with my family, and organizing things.
