Mrs. Cindy Uraine

I am the Instructional Strategist here at Fitzgerald. My job is a combination of organizing, planning and coordinating intervention services for students, as well as helping teachers. This is my 30th year teaching and over those years, I have taught at elementary school, high school & at Arizona State University. The majority of that time has been in the primary grades and it has been my pleasure to spend 22 years here at Fitzgerald. To all of my students and their families: This is my last year teaching, as I am retiring at the end of this year. I would love to hear from any of you who would like a virtual hug. I will miss you all so much. Please remember the following: You ARE special and unique. You ARE important. You ARE kind. You ARE a good person. You ARE smart. AND I loved you then, I love you now and I will love you always and forever no matter what.

Mrs. Myra Citron

Hello Foxes! I've been an educator for over 30 years starting as a dance instructor and computer/technology trainer. After having kids, I taught kindergarten for 10 years and later becoming a Special Education teacher for the past six years. I love teaching and being a part of a students' educational journey, focusing on strengths, not weaknesses, so they reach their full potential. Although we're experiencing uncertainty, I know together we can build confidence, increase independence, and lead the way for students to achieve life-long success. It takes a village to raise a child, and together we’ve got this!
