There is a new rotation in the Upper Elementary schedule. Ms. Cynthia Mullett, our IT Specialist, teaches Google basics using Google for education applications and file management in Google Drive, leading to how to be a responsible digital citizen.
In addition to teaching technology skills, Ms. Cynthia works with students in the UE garden space to connect life science in botany and zoology. Students will grow seasonal fruits & vegetables, expand the butterfly garden with native plants, and set up a space to cultivate leafy greens as food for the school’s unofficial mascot, a 15-year-old red-footed tortoise named Min.
Cynthia has been at MSSA for eight years. In five of those years, she served as a Lower Elementary assistant and two years as an IT Specialist. She is a certified Montessori guide in Elementary I and holds an M.Ed in Innovative Learning. Before coming to MSSA, Ms. Cynthia worked as a systems engineer and served in the US Air Force. In addition to teaching, Ms. Cynthia is a Texas Master Naturalist. Ms. Cynthia spent time volunteering with the Alamo Area Chapter at Phil Hardberger Park as a nature educator. We are thrilled to have Ms. Cynthia conducting science-based, in-depth observations of our campus as they document birds, wildflowers, or insects in a specific habitat. It’s a great way to take the time to observe plants and wildlife and better understand how everything is connected in nature.
