My name is Kelly Kauffman. I have been a Pirate my whole life. I graduated from Riverside in 1993. After earning my teaching license, I was hired as a sixth grade teacher. I have since then earned my master's degree along with my principal's certificate. I have also taught fourth, seventh and eighth grades. I live in the district, along with my husband and children.
I am thrilled to be entering my sixth year as the MS/HS Principal! I am dedicated and passionate about our students and their success. I look forward to working with the students, staff and community as we build on our past successes to ensure our students are prepared for their futures!
We have a fantastic staff who have been planning for this year and have been hard at work preparing their rooms for their students. Along with our returning staff, I am pleased to introduce new staff members:
Emily Curnutte - Spanish
Kasandera Knief - Instrumental Music
Education is truly a community effort. I am thankful to our school community for their dedication and care for our students. I am excited and hopeful for our future and thank everyone for their support!
