Dear Three Falls Families,
I love Three Falls Elementary! My first connection to Three Falls Elementary began in 2001 when my oldest child started Kindergarten here with Mrs. Hinton. My Children spent 3 years going to Three Falls before I got my first teaching job and took them to school with me. My heart is here, my little family started here, and I’ve just loved being here with you. I love to be in the schools, learning and enjoying life with you. Ask my family… I’m always talking about school and how we can make it even better. I just love it!
My favorite part about education is guiding and allowing students to be critical thinkers. I love the phrase “Teach a man to fish and he will eat for life.” I also believe learning should be FUN and I am constantly looking for ways to keep school, lessons, and activities… FUN! I want students to be able to stretch their minds to learn anything and everything they can. I also have such a deep passion for relationships AND I believe in kids. I have a strong belief that all students can learn, that they have the capacity and confidence needed to achieve great success. Our job as educators is to help them find that confidence and find the capacity to engage in learning. I look forward to working with each and every student, all of our staff members, and you as families. Together, we will achieve greatness!
I was born and raised ‘on the range’ in southwest Kansas. My elementary school had about 35 total students in grades kindergarten through fifth and there were only 4 teachers in the whole school. I moved to southern Utah when I was a sophomore in high school. I graduated Class of 1994 from Hurricane High School. ( Go Tigers!) My parents are Fred and Karen Clyde. I am the 3rd of 10 children. If you hear the Clyde name, I am most likely related… but I like to joke that if one of them is ornery, I have no idea who that Clyde is :o)
My Husband Mike and I have four children together. Our son Cody is married to Chloe and they have a little boy, Major, with a baby girl due the end of May. Our oldest daughter Kelli is married to Dalton and they have Nevaeh, and an angel baby, Leigha, and Kinsley. Yep all girls so far! Our daughter Rylee graduated form Hurricane High school in 2021 and has ventured out to figure out this thing we call “life”. Evelyn, our youngest, comes to school right here at Three Falls and is in the dual immersion program. Evelyn loves anything about learning! I have a wonderful, extremely supportive family and I love each of them dearly. Most of my free time is spent following my own children/grandchildren to their activities and having family gatherings. Family is very important to me and I tell students they have simply been added into my already big family!
Here we go on a new adventure! Go FALCONS!
