Cindy Rowden ~ 3rd

Hello!  My name is Cynthia (Cindy) Rowden and I am the third grade teacher for KCS. In 1987, I obtained my Bachelor of Education degree from Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas.  I have taught for 31 years in public schools: 27 years for Ector County ISD and 4 for Mesquite ISD.  During those years, I taught Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and 6th grades.  I was also a Curriculum Specialist before moving to the Dallas area.  I am so excited to be teaching here at Kaufman Christian School.  The Lord has blessed me by helping to fulfill a dream to teach in a private school this year and I am so grateful! Children are an inspiration and I love their energy and excitement they bring to my classroom on a daily basis!  I am fascinated to watch them create, learn, apply, and find answers to their questions and mine.

I am married to the love of my life and best friend, Mark.  Mark is a Police Chief for a neighboring school district.  We have been married 31 years and have 2 boys, Chrystopher (27) and Jonathyn (13).  Our family attends Sunnyvale First Baptist Church and we are involved in activities there.

During my free time I enjoy cooking, reading, “playing” with my plants, camping, and crafts for the house and garden.

Should you have any questions, feel free to email me here.
