Hi! My name is Rhiannon Nazarenus, and I teach first grade at Orchard Park Elementary. I have been teaching since 2000 and most of those years have been with first graders! After graduating from Ohio University with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, I taught 4 years at West Elkton Elementary (Preble Shawnee School District). I then came "home" to Kettering and have been teaching at Orchard Park since 2004. I grew up in Kettering and attended Kettering schools. In 2007, I completed my master's degree from the University of Dayton in Technology-Enhanced Learning.
I now live in Bellbrook with my daughter. Most of my spare time is spent with her!
I look forward to teaching your child this year - we will learn a lot together! First grade is a year of tremendous growth. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns and/or questions.
