My name is Riley Vonder Haar and I am so excited to be a Kindergarten teacher this year at Queen of All Saints. I graduated from Truman State University with a Bachelor’s degree in English, including minors in Spanish and Child Studies. I also received my Masters of Art in Elementary Education from Truman with additional certifications in Early Childhood and English as a Second Language (ESL).
I firmly believe in the education of the whole child, mind, body, and soul. This begins by building close relationships with students which becomes the foundation for learning. With all students capable of high levels of learning, we create a classroom community rooted in Christ. I cannot wait to learn and grow with my kindergarteners!
In my free time, I love baking, reading, crafting, and playing with my two Tibetan Terrier puppies named Tobi and Micah.
This is my first year at Queen of All Saints and I am thrilled to join this community! I am so fortunate to be a part of such a loving environment.
