Ms. Cynthia Lauer
I am thrilled to teach at ASE for the 8th year! This is my 24th year teaching in FBISD and my 28th year teaching elementary. This year, I am, once again, teaching the GT self-contained class. I am GT trained and the Campus Champion of Gifted Services, as well as a trainer of GT teachers for the district. I am also the campus adviser for NEHS, and I am an NEHS District advisor and part of the district's NEHS Leadership Team. I am a member of the DPAC (District Planning and Advisory Committee), as well.
I am a proud Cougar with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (emphasis in early childhood and psychology) from the University of Houston. This year, I will obtain my Master of Science in Curriculum and Instruction from Western Governors University. I have been teaching in Fort Bend for 23 years, in elementary for 27 years, and in education for 29 years.
I love to read, and my goal is to encourage all of my students to love reading for a variety of purposes. Thinking critically is a necessary life skill, and I encourage my students, while providing the tools, to research and explore ideas. Math is a foundation for so many concepts, and I enjoy exploring different ways to figure things out. I also enjoy sharing riddles and brainteasers, as well as using different modes of imparting knowledge to "train their brains" to make connections and think in different ways. Additionally, fostering a sense of teamwork and promoting good citizenship while celebrating individuality and creative talents are skills vital to future success. This year, my class will embark on a journey to create meaningful solutions to real-world situations through Project-Based Learning (PBL).
The ultimate goal is to provide for my students an example of leadership, responsibility, and inspiration so that they, too, may be trusted to lead and inspire others.
