Mrs. Cynthia Rill

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

This is my fourth year with SLPS, and my fourth year at Compton-Drew. Before coming to C-D, I taught 7th grade science in another local district for two years. Before that, I was an Educator/Interpreter in the then-brand-new GROW gallery in our neighbors-St. Louis Science Center. I am honored 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 engineering, one in neuroscience and computers.) When I am not at Compton-Drew, I enjoy reading, taking classes, volunteering at the Missouri Botanical Garden, and connecting with family.

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

 Office Hours: telephone calls returned 25 minutes after school (2:20-2:45); virtual appointments arranged by email request.
