Mrs. Hutchins’ Journey to GHS

Meet our amazing new biology teacher!

Mrs. Cynthia Hutchins has had a fascinating journey before coming to Glendale High School to teach science. She is currently teaching Living Earth and Physiology at our school.

Mrs. Hutchins attended Charter Oak High School in Covina. After graduation, she first went to Mount San Antonio College, otherwise known as Mount SAC. After that, she transferred to Cal Poly Pomona, where she received an undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. She has also done a lot of studies in physical therapy and in the math field.

Before working at Glendale High School, Mrs Hutchins did a lot of retail while she was in college. She also worked at Target and Burlington. She was also a substitute teacher at Charter Oak and also at Covina Valley. She chose to teach ninth graders at GHS, because she wanted to teach biology, and everybody takes biology in their ninth grade year. 

Early in her life, Mrs. Hutchins started to understand that she enjoyed the teaching aspect of the medical field. That’s when she decided to become a teacher, and hopefully, she will be able to teach anatomy and physiology in the future.

Mrs. Hutchins loves the impact that she has on her freshman students. She knows that we students not only remember the material covered in class, but we also hold on to the life lessons that we have been taught. She also thinks that ninth grade is a good time, because freshmen are just starting to come into high school and they don’t know a lot about it. 

Mrs. Hutchins has some advice for GHS students. “You should try to be as involved as you can in high school and find out what your interests are,” she said, “because once you’re done with high school it’s this really weird feeling. And you have all these celebrations, but after all that you [will] have to start making your own choices.” 

Mrs. Hutchins is excited to be at GHS. She hopes to be exposed to a variety of different cultures, and she is interested to learn how those cultures view different topics.

Welcome to our school, Mrs. Hutchins!
