Cyndee Hitz is an elementary school teacher at Reach Cyber Charter School. She holds a master’s degree in early childhood education from Penn State University. Ms. Hitz began her teaching career in 2011 and joined Reach Cyber in 2017. Below she shares why she loves being a teacher.
“I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, for as long as I can remember. And I have had a lot of great teachers who have inspired me along the way! Growing up, I had a favorite principal whom I admired a great deal, Mr. Denny Brehm. He was such an influential part of why I became an educator, and he really knew how to connect with the staff and students he worked with every day. He made every student feel very cool and made coming to school every day so much fun.

I love teaching at Reach Cyber, especially the one-on-one sessions with each of my students where I get to talk with them on a more personal level and be more than just a face on the screen.“
Outside of teaching, Ms. Hitz can be found spending time with her niece and nephew and trying new things.
