Mrs. Cynthia Saxton

My name is Cynthia Saxton. I am a Primary Montessori teacher. I have been teaching Primary Montessori since August 2009. Primary Montessori includes 3K, 4K, and 5K students in the same classroom.

Since teaching Montessori, I could not imagine teaching any other way. The students are like sponges and love learning at this early age. My favorite part of teaching is called “kid watching.” I learn so much from the students by watching and listening to their daily activities which guides me in following their stages of development.  My goal  is to awaken the "joy of learning" in all my students.

I have a BS from Coker College in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have a Master’s degree from St. Catherine University in Education with an emphasis in Montessori Education and an Early Childhood Credential in Primary Montessori from the American Montessori Society. Prior to becoming a Montessori teacher, I taught Kindergarten for 2 years and 1st grade for 2 years.
