Cindy Stephens has spent over half of her life dedicated to her passion of creating an educational system that honors and supports children in their lifelong journey of learning. She is currently a full time faculty member of the Early Childhood Education department at College of the Canyons. She has been a full time faculty since 2002. Previous to that, she was an adjunct faculty in both the adult and children’s environment. She is grateful for all of the years she spent in the early childhood environment as it has afforded her the ability to share her experience and knowledge with her adult students.
In addition to her work in the ECE department at COC, Cindy is the program director for Foster and Kinship Care Education, the Coordinator for the Child Development Training Consortium, the division representative on the Curriculum Committee, and has held various positions in Early Childhood organizations over the many years she has dedicated herself to the field of Early Childhood.
Cindy currently resides in the Santa Clarita Valley with the love of her life. She raised two wonderful children, Taylor and Trent and enjoys spending time with the two wonderful adults they have become.
One of her favorite quotes is: “Children don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.” - Unknown
