Mrs. Cindy Pendergrass (Teacher): My Name is Cindy Pendergrass, and I am a mother to two children. My loves include my children, animals, sports and reading! Over the past 5 years I have developed a brand new passion. Despite completing my Master’s Degree in Education, I was still unclear of where my fit was into the work world. It wasn’t until I had my own children that I learned the joy and satisfaction of seeing the toddlers develop and learn new things. I am very excited to work with a great staff and in an environment that I fully believe is amazing and productive. I want to help the future of our community be the best that they can be, and that starts with teaching our children. I would love to partner with you to create the best learning journey possible for your child. This is the building block that I hope to construct a solid foundation for the students.
