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 7th grade PACE.  I am also the AVID Coordinator and teach the two AVID classes.

I'm excited to welcome students back into the classroom for the 2022-2023 school year and hope to have a more "normal" school experience! I've moved from English to history this year, and I look forward to helping my students develop a love of history while watching them learn and grow.  I encourage a strong classroom community and a positive environment so we are able to work together and support one another as we develop skills that help us become organized learners and well-rounded citizens. 

One of my goals this year is to encourage my students to reflect on their learning experience 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!
