Algebra I and Geometry
Math Department Chair
Hi! My name is Cindy Bernstein and I am so happy to be returning to the New West Charter team for the 2021/2022 school year. This is my fourth year at New West, and my eighth year as a math teacher.
I grew up in New York, not far from New York City. I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics, and my Masters degree in Curriculum Development, both from the State University of New York at Albany. I’ve had quite a few interesting and exciting years of experience in the business world, but a little over 5 years ago, I made the decision to return to my passion, which is being in the classroom with my students.
I moved from New York to Los Angeles over 20 years ago with my husband who is also a New Yorker. We have a daughter who is returning to the east coast for her Sophomore year of college. When I’m not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and daughter, taking yoga and spin classes, hiking, and playing in the kitchen.
This year I will be teaching Algebra 1 and Geometry. I am looking forward to getting to know my students (in person!) and having a great and successful year together!
