    My name is Mrs. Gniadek. I am excited to be teaching your student this year! I have been teaching kindergarten for 26 years.  I am married with 2 teenage daughters, Haley and Riley.  I love spending time with my family and friends, shopping and sparkly things!  I am excited to get to know you all and embark on our new adventure together!

    I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Laura Grubb and I am delighted to be your child’s teacher this year at Buder Elementary. I am married with children (Jack, Evan, and Hope) and every year I adopt your children as my own.  This will be my 18th year with the Ritenour School District and my 23rd year teaching.  I enjoy learning- I have my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education; two Master’s degrees (Early Childhood Education and Educational Technology), and a Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) certificate.  The young children are my heart and soul.  I enjoy everything about teaching Kindergarten.  This year will no doubt be one of the best years I have taught.  Every year gets better because I meet new little ones to warm my heart.  I know your child’s first year of school will be a great experience.
