Mrs. Cindy Zylstra

Welcome to the Tiger Tales Room!

Hello!  My name is Cindy Zylstra.  I am one of the reading teachers in the Tiger Tales reading room.  I have been a teacher at John R. Tibbott School since 2000.  I spent 15 years teaching second grade, and have been a teacher in the reading room ever since.  I received my Bachelor's Degree from North Central College in Naperville, and my Master's Degree from Benedictine University in Lisle.  

I have a son who keeps me busy.  When I am not helping students develop their reading skills, you can find me curled up with a good book.  I love to spend my free time gardening or walking my dogs.  

I look forward to a productive school year and can't wait to pass on my love of books to our students!
