Mrs. Cygeirt has enjoyed being a part of the “educational journeys” for hundreds of Walkerville students for almost 30 years.

“Kindergarten is a wonderful grade to teach,” she said. “You’re building beginning reading skills in your students – critical concepts they will carry with them forever. As the students grow older, they might not remember what they learned in Kindergarten, but I know I helped give them something no one can take away.”

Mrs. Cygeirt believes great potential exists in every child. Seeing new lessons and concepts “click” in the minds of her students is one of her biggest joys. “I’m so fortunate to be able to see potential grow each and every school day,” she said.

Besides the fact that springtime signals the end of winter, Mrs. Cygeirt has another reason for enjoying spring. “At springtime it’s incredible to think back on the progress each one of my students has made, especially to see them blossom into eager and confident young readers.”
