Cynthia Rowden

3rd Grade

Hello!  My name is 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 36 years!  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 starting my 5th year teaching here at Kaufman Christian School.  The Lord has blessed me by helping to fulfill a dream to teach in a private school  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. Most of all, I love watching them grow in their knowledge and love of the Lord.

I am married to Mark who is the love of my life and my best friend.  Mark is a Police Chief for a neighboring school district.  We have been married 35 years and have 2 boys, Chrystopher and Jonathyn.  We also have 4 dogs who keep us really busy and happy.

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

Backpacks and lunch boxes must be generic. They may have designs or be multi-colored, but we ask that they not promote any advertisements of any other school, movie, TV, or cartoon character, business, or organization. The backpack’s brand name, such as Jansport, L.L. Bean, Champion, etc. is acceptable as long as it is not a design.
