About Ms. Cindy Pino...
Position: PHS Testing & Assessment Dual Enrollment Liaison, National Honor Society Adviser
After 41 years of classroom teaching, 15 of them at Perry in the English Department, I finally took the big step towards retirement. Not ready to leave this wonderful school, I accepted a new position as the Testing & Assessment Coordinator. I look forward to working with staff and students in helping to make the state-mandated testing as smooth as possible!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from the University of Arizona (Bear Down!) with both my BA and MA in Education. I am also certified to teach gifted instruction. I have taught at several schools across the state of Arizona, finally settling in Chandler and helping to open Perry High School in 2007, where I served as the first English Department Chair. During my last ten years at Perry, I taught Advanced Placement Language and Composition. My additional roles at Perry include serving as the Dual Enrollment Liaison and the School Improvement Coordinator. I also serve as the advisor for the National Honor Society.
My Educational Philosophy
A love and respect for young people and a desire to reach them as individuals are paramount in helping them to be successful.
