Mrs. Cynthia Hicks Giles. MS Ed.

Welcome back students and parents, and thank you for visiting my Webpage!  

I am Cynthia Giles and this will be my 7th year teaching at Cleveland High School in the Career and Technical Education Department (CTE), this semester I will be teaching Principles of Business and Finance classes only, and next semester Microsoft Word and PowerPoint. 

I am looking forward to having an exciting and impactful school year. In my class, students will learn some valuable and useful skills that can be used as they transition from high school onto their career paths!  All of my assignments will be posted on canvas. Therefore, students will have access to all materials covered in class.  Please be sure to register on the Parent Portal for access to your child’s academic and school documents.   My class syllabus and schedule are posted on this site.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child!  I look forward to working with you both to make this a productive and successful school year!
