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. We have one daughter, Cheyenne, who will be two years old in December!
This will be my seventh year of teaching and I am so excited to continue at Gold Rush! Prior to Gold Rush, 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. I am also a certified Reading Specialist, after receiving my Master's Degree in Reading Education in 2017.
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 Monday, August 6th!
