South Elementary has 18 classroom teachers that serve about 475 students. We serve four sections of Kindergarten, three first grades, three second grades, four third grades, three fourth grades, and three fifth grades. Collectively we have over 275 years of teaching experience, and over 960 years of parenting experience! Ten of us have masters degrees, four of us have degrees in something in addition to education, including one in botany. Six of us grew up in homes where one or both parents were teachers, and one of us suffered a father as a principal. Eleven of us have specialized endorsements in things such as reading, special education, and teaching gifted and talented students. One of us survived being run over when she was two, and one of us has rocks in her head! We've been all over the world from Acapulco to Singapore; One of us has probably RUN around the world if you could count her footsteps. Three of us have been chosen Teacher of the Year for either Iron County School District or the Cedar Area Chamber of Commerce. Exceptional students attract exceptional teachers!!
We like to think we're developing
these characters in Kindergarten!
Watch out for traffic,
Hold hands and stick together.
Education is the
weapon which you
can use to change
The important thing is not so much
that every child should be taught,
as that every child should be given the wish to learn.
is not the filling of a pail,
but the lighting of a fire.
Wiliam Butler Yeats
