Cindy is a Secondary Instructional Coach at Tehipite Middle School in Fresno. She came to Bootcamp II to learn what the heck a wiki is. I can say that because she has an amazing sense of humor too! She is looking to use technology to help the teachers she coaches find new avenues and platforms for student reading and writing. She herself doesn't use technology personally because after a day of data analysis, she has "screen fatigue."

Cindy performs one of the most important functions of a coach, she is the debriefer. After the teachers have attended a SIOP meeting, she sits and debriefs with them and helps them envision what it will look like in their classroom. She bridges the gap between what teachers learn in an in-service and how it will work in their classroom. She has a vital role as coach and debriefer!
