    About Cynthia Dentonpurple line
    Welcome to First Grade.
    I am a Kansas Jayhawk at heart. I lived in the Kansas Ciity area, went to the University of Kansas in Lawrence, and met my husband on the K.U. campus. I have taught first through sixth grades, but first grade is very  special to me.  The road to the Southwest took my husband, son , and me from Kansas, through Tulsa, Oklahoma and then stopped in Ahwatukee.  While in Phoenix, we added a daughter-in-law and later a grandson and granddaughter to our family.  I have been teaching first grade in Kyrene for 29 years, with 28 of these within the walls of Colina School. I always look forward to each new school year and thank parents for entrusting your children to my care.
    Rock Chalk Jayhawk!
