• Hello my name is Mrs. Cheryl Ritz and I teach 10th Grade Regents Earth Science. This is my fourth year teaching earth science here at Pioneer. Prior to coming to Pioneer I taught two years at Franklinville and a year at Syracuse University.

    I live in Eden NY which is also where I went to high school and graduated from in 2001. After high school I went to the Environmental Science and Forestry College in Syracuse. While I was there I majored in Evironmental Science-Earth and Atmospheric Systems Science but more importantly this is where I got my first taste of teaching. After this first experience I learned it was something I loved and went on to earn my Masters of Science Education at Syracuse University in 2006.

    In addition to being a teacher I am also a wife and a mom. I have been married since 2006, we adopted our doggy daughter Ruby in January 2007, I had my first daughter Grace in December 2008 and our second daughter in August 2011.
