I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from Concordia College in Selma, Alabama.
My experience includes 11 years with the Wilcox County Board of Education as a teacher's aide and currently, 10 years as a classroom teacher.
My name is Cynthia M. Pettway. I am a First Grade teacher at ABC Elementary School. This is my fifth year teaching. I live in Boykin, Alabama with my husband Frank Pettway and our youngest daughter Trinity. I have 1 adult daughter, Chiqueeta Pettway and 4 adult sons, Demetrius, John, Cedrick, and Frank, Jr., who are out on their own and doing very well for themselves in the work force.
I am a member of Pleasant Grove M. B. Church, Boykin, AL, where I serve as Youth Director, a member of the program committee and a choir member.
I enjoy teaching because "Little People" are my life. They bring joy to me, especially when I witness their faces lighting up when they learn one new concept or skill. Witnessing learning in children just fills my heart.
Just recently (April 5, 2012), I received WAKA CBS 8 Golden Apple Award.
Just before Spring Break (school term 2012-2013), I was nominated Teacher of the Year at ABC Elementary.
On May 22, 2013, I received a Recognition of Honor as Wilcox County's Teacher of the Year on the Elementary Level.
