Hello, my name is Cindy Peppler. I have a son named Will, who just turned 24. I am from Charleston and I have recently moved back to West Ashley from Summerville.
I attended Trident Technical College and earned an Associate's Degree in Science in 1997. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Early Elementary Education from the College of Charleston in December of 1999. I completed and earned my Master of Science in Education, with a Specialization in Elementary Reading and Literacy, through the Education Department of Walden University. In December of 2006, I earned my National Board Teaching Certification. After all of the hard work, it became a significant milestone of my teaching career. It encourages me to reflect on my teaching practices and philosophies.
In October 2008, I was elected to be the Orange Grove Elementary Charter School Teacher of the Year. The honor is even greater because it was bestowed by my peers. Never did I imagine becoming teacher of the year. It was truly an honor and privilege to know that I not only make a difference with my students, but that I have been recognized for my work by my coworkers, friends, and school family.
