Fifth Grade

Welcome to my web page.   My name is Mr. Snyder and I have been teaching at Central Lyon since 1990.  I am currently a 5th grade teacher, but I taught Middle School English and literature for 5 years.  

I teach all of the science and English in 5th grade.    I am involved with the Varsity track program.  I am the boy's head coach, but I work with the girl's program as well.

My wife, Rhona, and I have three children: Cole, Claire, and Carly. Rhona is still working with Good Sam.  If you look up and to the Northwest you can see her at work heading towards the states of South Dakota, North Dakota, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.   Cole was married to Kezia Poppinga on May 28, 2016.  They have a son, Roland Daniel, who was born on June 30th of 2017.  They live in Port Orange, Florida.  Claire is a nurse at Sanford working on the oncology floor..  Carly is a sophomore at Iowa State University. She is studying in the field of speech pathology.  Yes I allowed her to go to college in Ames, but NO I do not cheer for the Clones.  If you heard that I was....it's probably FAKE news.  When there is free time I really love to pheasant and coyote hunt.  Rhona and I have 4 fur babies that have invaded our home.
