    • Bio
      • I received my bachelor degree from Texas Tech University. Last year was my first year in a classroom at Riverside middle school, teaching math. I co-taught 6th grade accelerated, 7th grade Pre-AP, Pre-Algebra, and Geometry. I look forward to an exciting new year and the challenges that are ahead of us, knowing that together we will conquer all. I teach to develop and prepare the future for what is to come. Certain teachers that I had provided me with lessons that still resonate today. I hope to "pay it forward" and be a positive and supportive teacher just as those teachers were for me.

    Cynthia Thompson




    • Bio & Teaching Philosophy
      • I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Finance and a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I also completed the University’s Mid-Level (4-8) Math Certification program. Additionally, I hold an Associates Degree in Computer Programming.
      • I have eight years experience in public school education, including three years as a middle school math teacher. This school year will be my second year at Benbrook Middle High School. The environment and the support from colleagues and administration are extraordinary.
      • I genuinely enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge and passion for learning. I also stand behind my philosophy that all people are capable of learning. I believe that it is the teacher's responsibility to identify the needs, strengths, and learning preferences of each student to determine what triggers their enthusiasm for learning. It is my goal to continue to develop or ignite, in each student, a passion for learning.
