About Me

My name is Mr. Kenny Rindlisbacher (Mr. R). I live with my wife Laura and our children here in the Valley area. This is my 14th year at Valley School and my 27th year teaching. I am very excited about teaching and about our school. We enjoy living in this beautiful area and being involved in the school and community. I served a two year mission to Argentina and learned the Spanish language and a love for the Argentine people. I graduated from Utah State University with a Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education. I later received my master’s degree through City University in Educational Technology. I served two years as lead teacher at a K-8 school. I have taught the majority of my years in some form or another of 5th grade and thoroughly enjoy this age. I also advise our Jr. ASB. This is a group of peer elected students in grades 3-5. We meet weekly to learn leadership skills and to plan and carry out activities for Valley School students that motivate students to want to come to school.

Welcome

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! 5th graders are at an amazing age. They are capable of so many things that we are able to review, learn, explore, and sometimes play with all subjects. I hope this year is a great year for the students and families. I have been using Facebook as a communication tool for a few years and find it a wonderful way to keep in contact. If you haven't, look me up and request to join our private Mr. R's 5th grade Valley School group.
