Welcome! My name is Cindy Kirin, Health Aide for Copper Creek Elementary School's Health Office. In 1999, my family and I moved to Arizona due to a job change for my husband, Rick. I have two children; they attended Amphitheater schools and both are graduates of Ironwood Ridge High School. My daughter is also a graduate of the University of Arizona and my son is currently in the Navy.
I was influenced to pursue a career in health care by both of my aunts; they were Operating Room Nurses. I spent time with them and my cousins over many summer vacations. I loved touring the hospital units and operating rooms where they worked. I graduated from Choffin School of Practical Nursing. I have over 20 years of clinical experience. I started working at Copper Creek in 2000.
My primary role is to support student success by addressing their health needs during the school day. I provide support for students with chronic health conditions so that these students may safely stay in school. I help coordinate healthcare plans for students with food allergies, diabetes, seizures and asthma. I also oversee medication administration for students who need medication during the school day. Annual screenings for vision and hearing are also a part of my duties. I enjoy taking care of children and working with the amazing staff at Copper Creek.
