Welcome to first grade! My name is Cindi McClelland and I am honored to be teaching your child. In my 20 years of teaching, I firmly believe we can truly bring out the best in your child if we work together as a team. I'm passionate about teaching and love my job! I will be your child's advocate to help them find success however possible. My enthusiasm for teaching keeps children motivated and engaged. If you can't reach them.....you can't teach them. Please know that I am here for both you and your child. Academics is only one aspect of my classroom. Beyond academics, there is a beautiful, socially, and emotionaly charged individual who deserves attention, love, and respect. I believe your child will find that in room 18!
