Mrs. Cynthia Rill

Greetings, 7th graders! I am excited to go through a year of exploring science with you!

This is my first year with St. Louis Public Schools. I taught 7th grade science in another local district for two years. Before that, I was an Educator in the brand-new GROW gallery at our next-door neighbors, the St. Louis Science Center. I am thrilled to be part of the Compton-Drew ILC family!

Born in St. Louis right down the street at Barnes Hospital, I have spent most of my life in the metropolitan St. Louis area. I have two grown children, both of them college graduates with jobs in STEM fields (one in mechanical engineering, one in neuroscience and computers.) When I am not at school, I spend my time volunteering as a Docent for the Missouri Botanical Garden, taking online classes, reading, or exercising. I would say "exploring new places" but... 2020. 

I love learning, and I hope you will too. Please contact me with any questions. I am positive it will be a great year!
