Dear Three Falls Families,
I want to announce that I will be officially starting at Three Falls Elementary on Tuesday, April 6th. We do not have school on Friday the 2nd or Monday the 5th, so I will be the new face at the school as we return from the holiday break.
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, that will be two next fall. Our oldest daughter Kelli is married to Dalton and they have a 2 year old girl, Nevaeh, and an angel baby, Leigha. They are also expecting baby girl #3 in June! (Yes, I am a grandma and I love it!) Our daughter Rylee is wrapping up her senior year at Hurricane High School. She loves anything to do with art or science and also enjoys writing her own stories. Evelyn, our youngest, is 6 years old and growing up way too fast! She is in Kindergarten at Hurricane Elementary, but I will be bringing her to Three Falls with me next school year. 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!
