•      Hi, welcome to third grade!  My name is Cindy Coggins and this is my seventh year teaching third grade at Countryside Elementary.  I am originally from Buffalo, New York.  I received my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Murray State University, and my Master's degree in Reading from Canisius College.  I previously taught 4th and 5th grade  for several years before deciding to stay home with my three children. I was a substitute teacher at their elementary and middle schools, until my youngest went off to college. At that time I joined the Countryside staff. When I am not at school, I enjoy reading, and am an avid sports fan (especially football). I love the third grade curriculum and the special people at Countryside!  I look forward to a wonderful year ahead working with you and your child.  Please don't hesitate to contact me either by email:  Cindy.Coggins@lcps.org, or 571-434-3250.
