Mrs. Cristi Dyer

I am originally from Clearwater, FL, but spent 16 years living in Stuttgart, Germany.  I have been in Plano for over 20 years and appreciate the diverse culture and community our city offers.  I have two daughters in college, both of whom went through the West cluster schools.  Not only am I a Rice teacher, but I'm also a member of the Rice community.

This year I will be teaching 6th grade English Language Arts and Reading (ELAR).  I am also the AVID Coordinator and teach the 7th and 8th grade AVID classes.

I'm excited to welcome students back into the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year and look forward to meeting and working with students face-to-face soon! I recognize that we will continue to face challenges this year, but I'm excite to tackle them headon and watch my students learn and grow.  I foster a welcoming and encouragning environment in our classroom so we are able to work together and support one another as we develop skills that help us become well-rounded and better organized learners. 

One of my goals this year is to encourage my students to reflect on their learning experience for the past 18 months and recognize some of their own academic needs.  Together I hope to address their struggles and celebrate their accomplishments as well as the many wonderful qualities they have to offer the world!
