Welcome to Mrs. Steinher's Second Grade Class!

I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy summer break!  I am looking forward to getting to know my second graders and families this new school year!  I believe a strong, positive classroom community while fostering a love of learning is essential for a successful school year.  Throughout the year, I strive to meet the needs of all students, ensuring instruction is developmentally appropriate and rigorous.

I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Providence College in Rhode Island in 2012. I am a certified Reading Specialist, after receiving my Master's Degree in Reading Education in 2017. This will be my eighth year of teaching and I am so excited to continue at Gold Rush!

I am originally from New York, but have made my way out west along with many of my family members.  I met my husband, Bryan, in South Dakota and we moved to Colorado to be closer to family.  We have one daughter, Cheyenne, who will be three years old in December! Cheyenne will also become a big sister in (mid-late) September!

I am excited to have Shay Holmes cover my maternity leave.  Shay is a former second grade teacher who has an extensive history at Gold Rush.  Shay has covered many long term maternity leave positions at our school and she is well versed with Gold Rush's curriculum and practices.  Rest assured that Shay and I will co-teach and plan together closer to my maternity leave to ensure that your child does not miss a beat.  I will send additional communication as we get into the school year.

Please be on the lookout for other emails regarding the beginning of the school year. I am looking forward to our year together and to meeting you and your second grader!  I hope to see you at “Meet the Teacher” on Tuesday, August 6th!

Warmly, 
Mrs. Steinher
