Introducing Mrs. Myer . . .
My name is Cindy Myer. I am a Crawford County native and only moved north to the Marshall area in 2004. I went to school, k-12, in Oblong and later attended Lincoln Trail College and Eastern Illinois University. After earning my certificate, I returned to teach at both Oblong High School and Lincoln Trail College. During that time, I taught courses ranging from remedial math through advanced math topics and computer programming through network design/maintenance. For four years, I taught for a factory in Paris, IL teaching for their employment testing topics: math, reading, mechanical aptitude, Minnesota shape recognition, clerical filing, and clerical math. My return to a high school teaching position hinges on my affinity for Crawford County and a love of teaching in an environment that allows me time to get to know my students.
At home, there are five in my family. I am happily married and celebrating my 28th anniversary in early Spring. My husband and I have three children: twin sons and a younger daughter. We raise a variety of animals and produce and spend as much time as possible outside: hiking, fishing, camping, gardening. With busy lives, we often find that 'getting away' (even if 'away' is in the backyard) is the best way to be together.
In the summer of 2009, I completed my master’s degree at the University of Illinois - Springfield. Since then, I have continued my quest for knowledge with other, post-graduate courses. During the summer of 2011, I attended an online class through Ball State University that was part of a grant program. I applied for and was chosen to participate in this course based on my application submitted in early March. The course went well, and I am using elements from my research in the classroom today.
Each summer, I select a focus for summer study: Excel, Classic Literature, Nonfiction, Writing Strategies, Learning Styles, Brain Research, How Students Learn. I never fail to find new ideas to bring to the classroom. A lifelong love of learning drives me to find new ways to help others learn as well.
