Hi, welcome to third grade! My name is Cindy Coggins and this is my eighth 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, spending time with my family, 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.
