• Out of Field Teachers

    Florida State law requires that schools notify parents/guardians when a teacher is assigned teaching duties in a class dealing with subject matter that is outside the field in which the teacher is certified (out of field).


    Cypress Ridge is proud of its caring, highly qualified teaching staff.

    Mrs. Gelardi is our new Literacy Coach, coming to us with a Masters degree in Reading and Literacy. She meets this criteria of being out of field, but has three years to complete her reading endorsement and is currently working towards this. We are excited to have her join our team.


    Mrs. Nichols has been a teacher here at Cypress Ridge for two years. She recently moved to Kindergarten. Mrs. Nichols is currently out of field in the areas of ESOL Endorsement and is working on adding her ESOL Endorsement to her Florida Certification.
