Degrees and Certifications:

Cynthia Moreno

Although it seems like I call the Grand Canyon home, I was born and raised in New Jersey.  I was introduced to the Southwest after I graduated high school and volunteered for a year on the Reservation in New Mexico.  I returned to Jersey and stayed for a couple years but then followed my heart back to the Southwest to Flagstaff, Arizona where I lived for about 10 years and attended NAU.  


I was fortunate to obtain a teaching job at Grand Canyon School where It is certainly a privilege to live and teach.  I have been here for 22 years and love this school and community.  I was married on the Rim and my two children were born here.  


I taught second grade for 11 years and then moved to Kindergarten where I found my passion.  I love teaching Kindergarten and take joy in their excitement and love of life.  Then after 10 years in Kindergarten I moved to the ELL program, working with students who have a second language in their life.  This has been an exciting new challenge and I have enjoyed every minute.
