Ms. Cynthia Oxender


C & I Assistant Principal

 I arrive to Jefferson Elementary Center as a previous Wood County C & I Assistant Principal and Reading Resource Teacher. My background includes serving as a federal grant reviewer for the United States Department of Education, teaching college level classes and possessing teaching certificates in Reading, Elementary Education, Special Education and Autism, Pre-school Special Needs, Library Media, and Middle School English. In previous roles at other schools, the students liked to call me "Ms. O." 

In my spare time I like to travel, read and work out. I am a lifelong learner and the next class I'm taking is to receive my motorcycle endorsement. My adult daughter is a corporate lawyer in Cincinnati, Ohio where she resides with my two grandpuppies. 

I live in Marietta, Ohio - just a stone's throw away and the short drive to work gives me a chance to think about how I will best serve students and staff when arriving to my home away from home - Jefferson Elementary Center! As its my first year at Jefferson, I look forward to meeting everyone and working together!
