Cynthia "Cindy" Srijayanta

I began my teaching career in 1999 with Asheville City Schools. I taught second grade for many years and then became a literacy coach for Asheville City Schools. As a literacy coach, I had the opportunity to work with grades Kindergarten through fifth grade. I discovered that I am most fulfilled when teaching students and wanted to be more connected with students and families. That discovery led me to Sand Hill-Venable Elementary, where I began as a Title I reading teacher in 2013. I completed my Master's Degree in Elementary Curriculum in 2013 and I hold a K-12 Reading Certification. In August 2019, I completed the Academically and Intellectually Gifted Certification  through Western Carolina University. 

I love teaching in the community where I live and raise my family. It is fun to see families from SH-V out and about in our community. It gives me a chance to connect and build relationships with families outside of school. I have two sons that are in the Enka district schools. My husband and I could not be more happy with the education they are receiving. We are proud to be Jets!!!! 

I am invested in Sand Hill-Venable and all of the amazing students and families I get the opportunity to serve. My true passion in life is teaching students and motivating them to reach their full potential.
