Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Dry Creek Staff and Parents,
My name is Cyndi Burdick and I am honored to have the opportunity to be the interim principal until the end of this academic year. This school has a special place in my heart because it’s where I learned I have a passion for teaching and learning. When I was a young newlywed, I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do and was lucky enough to be hired here at Dry Creek as a TA. I spent two and a half years working alongside the best and then left to pursue a degree in elementary education. Fast forward, I have taught preschool, elementary and middle school, led an education-based non-profit, and owned an educational consulting business. I was a principal in the Denver Public School District for three years and then selected by Cherry Creek to be the principal at Walnut Hills. After being next door for nine years I retired, and this is my third temporary assignment in the past three years.
I’ve been privileged to work alongside your previous principals as their colleague which has strengthened my knowledge of this staff and this community and this awareness gives me confidence as to how we’ll work together to provide our students with the learning experience that defines Dry Creek.
There is still a lot to be done this year and I look forward to working together, as we begin the next chapter.
