teaching

Here at KRL we like to shine the spotlight on those in education who go above and beyond, and it seemed appropriate that our last profile of the school year be of long time English teacher Elizabeth Hardcastle. It also seemed fitting for our anniversary issue, since our first ever teacher profile was of another RHS English teacher, Janet Adams.

“A great man of God.”
“A wonderful and uplifting human being.”
“An awesome teacher.”
All these quotes are to describe one of my favorite people in the community. Jeff March has been at Immanuel for quite awhile serving as a chaplain, a Bible and U.S. History teacher and many other wonderful positions at the school.

Seven years ago, Immanuel High School hired a new addition to the English department. Now one of the main English teachers on campus, Mimi Kriegbaum has become an inspiration to more than a few students, including myself. Before Immanuel, she taught kindergarten in Cutler, Ca, and transitioning from small children to young adults seemed to be the best decision for her.

Amber Hunt is the only French teacher at Reedley High School. She is amazing at staying cool even though she has a full schedule. If you go into her room during lunch, there will generally be a big group of kids visiting her. She’s not only a great teacher but a great person.

I walked into the classroom as a teacher for the first time with a knot in my stomach. How am I going to perform as a teacher? Can I really teach? What if I can’t? Will they find out I’m a fraud? This was my first job after college and I hoped I could do it.

Here at Kings River Life Magazine, we realize how important teachers and other school employees are to the lives of our children and the future of our communities as they shape the leaders of tomorrow. Sadly, most of the best of them work long hours with little recognition or thanks. Our goal here is to take a moment to thank as many of these people as we can — those who go above and beyond and exceed expectations.
