Welcome to Mary Beth Steinher’s Second Grade Class!
I hope that 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 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 our family. Our daughter, Cheyenne, was born this past December! She is such a joy and we are loving being parents for the first time!
This will be my sixth year of teaching and I am so excited for it to be at Gold Rush! Prior to this second grade teaching position, I taught second grade at Northridge Elementary in Highlands Ranch for two years. Before that, I taught for three years in South Dakota. I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary and Special Education from Providence College in Rhode Island in 2012. This year I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Literacy from Black Hills State University.
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”!
