Tell us about yourself!

Hi my name is Cindy Ayde and I have been a middle school counselor for the last 20 years. Currently I have both 6th and 7th grades this year which is very challenging. I decided to be a middle school counselor as it is my calling. I knew this was where I needed to be as these kids so badly need someone to go too. I am also in remission from breast cancer that was diagnosed in 2019. I just finished my last treatment in February. It has been a very challenging 2 years.

What is your favorite part of the Future Goals™program? How do you see STEM in the game of hockey?

I love this program as it creates healthy competition for the kids and teaches them math. They love it!
