Hi, my name is Lucinda Hampton. I generally go by Cindi. I have been teaching with the Jefferson City Public School District for the last five years. I have been in education for twenty-five years. I have had experience in every grade level, and I am a highly qualified instructor in Special Education.
I am certified in Elementary Education (1-8) and Special Education: Mild / Moderate Cross Categorical (K-12). I have taught general education, learning disabled and specialized functional education. I have taught all of the common core subjects along with study skills, Basic Health and Hygiene, Wilson’s Reading, Arts & Crafts, Cooking, Life Skills Economics, Functional keyboarding, and Functional Social Skills for Daily Life. Every summer I tutor one or more students in math or reading.
I grew up at the Lake of the Ozarks and attended college at Lincoln University. I was married in 1980 and soon began my family. Within a year I started college. I worked hard juggling my family, a job and college classes, but decided that it was important to continue for my own personal growth and success. I graduated with honors, while my children were still in elementary school. I feel that this showed my children that education was very important part of our lives.
I am also a wife, mother of seven and grandmother of seventeen. My family has lived in the Jefferson City area for twenty-six years. Many of my grown children are still living in the area. I am always busy doing something with my church or family. I enjoy walking at the Runge Nature Center, shopping downtown or at the mall, visiting the library, gardening, scrap-booking and playing at the many city parks with my fabulous grandchildren.
I am so very excited to be a part of the Jefferson City Academic Center (JCAC) staff. The experience of working with students who realize their need to graduate and have an alternative setting to do this is wonderful. The students know that this is an opportunity for them to succeed. Many work harder here than they have ever done before. Students are polite, respectful, and committed. Some students graduate early and others need a little more time to finish their classes. This setting is truly geared for the success of the individual. I feel blessed to be a part of this exciting and unique educational experience.
