Ms. Cindy Briones - Co-team Lead

Yay! Welcome to Third! My name is Ms. Briones and I am extremely excited to be your child's teacher this year. Third grade is an action-packed year full of immense growth and lots of learning, I cannot wait to see what the year has in store for us!
A little bit about me, I attended Mendenhall Elementary as a student myself, this the place that inspired me to be a teacher and I’m beyond excited to inspire my little ones to find their very own passion in life. I strive to build an environment in my classroom where everyone feels welcome, safe and loved. I just know this is going to be a great year!
