Alexander, Cindy

I am so excited to be teaching First Grade at Midway Elementary! This will be my third year at Midway, but my 25th year of teaching either Kindergarten or First Grade. I am a graduate of Miami University in Oxford, Ohio and I received my Masters in Early Childhood Education from the University of West Georgia. I also have completed my Math Endorsement. My goal is for your children to leave my classroom with a love for learning and a love for school. I believe that they will thrive in an environment where they are valued and, with that in mind, I will strive to make sure that each child has a special place in our classroom. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, going to the movies, and spending time with my husband, son, and daughter, as well as our 3 dogs. This is going to be a year where we are all going to be learning a lot and I really look forward to working with you and your children!

Hobbs, Beth

I am so excited to be part of the Midway family again this year! I graduated with an Associate's Degree from Young Harris College, and a duel degree in General and Special Education from The University of North Georgia. Then, I continued learning and received my Master's Degree in Education from Piedmont College. I taught first grade for three years at Shiloh Point Elementary and third grade for four years in Cherokee County. I am thrilled to be starting my ninth year of teaching in first grade here at Midway Elementary! My spare time is spent outdoors with my husband, Grey. We enjoy hikes, board games, and spending time in the North Georgia Mountains. I believe that every child has the right to learn in their own way using technology tools that will prepare them for the future. I think kids learn best when they make learning goals in order to be in charge of their own personal academic growth. This allows them to enjoy their success, and I love celebrating that success and achievements with my students! I look forward to meeting each of you and being a part of your child's first grade year.
