Teachers Working Out-Of-Field

Citrus Springs Middle School is proud that all 59 teachers and administrators who work with our students are certified by the State of Florida or other governing board. We appreciate the following teachers who have volunteered to teach a subject outside of their primary certification and are currently taking classes to obtain certification in the area they are teaching out-of-field.

  • Rebekah Paprzycki Pending Certification Math 5-9
  • Cynthia Rankin Out of Field Music/Chorus/Band

Each of these teachers has both experience and coursework in the area they are teaching. They are excellent teachers and we appreciate the extra effort they are putting forth on behalf of our students.

Christina Fowler is currently serving as a substitute teacher in the area of Reading. We feel she will best meet the needs of your child/children. If you wish to receive information concerning the substitute’s qualifications, you may do so in writing to the principal.
