Teacher of the Year finalist: Cindy Harrigan teaches first grade and has been with CMS since 2001. Harrigan's passion for teaching stems from the rewards the profession has afforded her. "It is the child who has now become a fluent reader, the student who has found her voice as a writer or the child who has become a problem solver," she said. "It has been gratifying to foster academic and social growth for so many children. Knowing that I have fostered the creation of lifelong learners makes teaching a worthwhile career choice."
