Ms. Cindy McKay

This is my tenth year teaching First Grade. I have taught 10 years of Kindergarten.  I have taught Kindergarten, First and Second grades.  I love teaching First Grade because it is a year of lots of reading and the children are so eager to learn.   I enjoy working with the children to help them become independent readers.  I have a passion for learning and hope to instill that love of learning in my students.  I love my job!

I grew up in Boise and attended BSU.  I married and had 4 wonderful children. I was a stay at home mom until my children were teenagers.  Then I went back to BSU and graduated in Elementary Education.  This is my 20th year of teaching.  I love my job! It is such a pleasure to work with my sweet students and watch them grow.

I am now Grammy to 14 grandchildren who are 3.5 years to 15.5 years.  I love and adore each of my sweet grandkids! I like to ask them about their school experience.  They give me some great ideas too.  My oldest grandson starts high school in August.  He told me that he plans on being an honor student and he will be.  He sets goals for himself and meets them.  I appreciate the great example he is to his cousins and his siblings.   My oldest granddaughter is beginning her second year of high school.  She is an honor student and is active in BSM.  She earned a trip to Florida last year for BSM and was able to go to Disneyworld with her business club.  She is a great example too! All my grandkids that attend school do their best and make their Grammy so proud!  They are all so precious!
I love spending time with my family.  We have birthday parties all together and play games, dodge ball, some basket ball and have nerf wars or go swimming in the summer.  We usually take a trip together and enjoy our time so very much.  This summer we rented a 3 story house in Salt Lake City and we had fun going to Lagoon, Hogle Zoo, the Aquarium, the Planetarium, toured Temple Square and went to Antelope Island.  We also do family camping in tents.  We found a fabulous site, right here in Idaho.  We have so much fun!  I love how much support my 4 children give each other and me.   The cousins love to have birthday parties.  Me too!  I also enjoy reading, painting, sewing, cooking, walking and yard work in the summer.
