Cynthia RiedyDear Students and Families of John Jenkins Elementary School,

I am Mrs. Riedy and I will be the Reading Teacher at John Jenkins Elementary School. I am looking forward to seeing our students and meeting their families as we open a new school which will develop into a community of scholars.

I have been teaching reading for many years as a special educator. I truly love the process of helping students to become skilled readers. Skilled reading takes away all barriers for students in realizing their full potential in the world. I am looking forward to working with teachers, students and parents at John Jenkins Elementary School to help students develop strong reading and writing skills.

This summer has been a busy one preparing for the upcoming school year. My husband and my daughter have started to raise honeybees and we hope to have some honey from our hives next summer! My daughter attends middle school. We enjoy trying new recipes together and taking hikes with our dog.

I look forward to the opportunity of contributing to a successful opening year for John Jenkins Elementary School. Our team of teachers and support staff will work together to give each student the skills needed to be successful in school.
