I’m Yselic Montalvo and I grew up in beautiful San Diego, CA. I graduated from San Diego State University, (BA) then I met my husband while on vacation. We moved to Long Island NY, and I got my Masters Degree at Brooklyn College. I taught 4th grade for 4 years, and subbed grades k-6th grade for 3 years. My family laughs together almost every day. We enjoy walking, fishing, and playing sports together. I love to play tennis and take Zumba classes in my free time. :)
Hi, I’m Brittany Rose and I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. My parents and I left "home" when I was young and moved to New Hampshire where I grew up. Thankfully, Cape Breton is still a major part of my life and I get to go back and visit family at least once a year. It's one of the most beautiful places on the planet and I LOVE it! I went to the University of North Carolina-Charlotte where I earned my degree in Elementary Education. I have taught 1st and 4th grade and loved both. I absolutely love my class this year! They are kind, responsible, and love to learn about the 7 Habits. I still have a special place in my heart for my old 1st graders and LOVE to see their cute little faces roaming around the halls. My parents and I are still Canadian citizens and have Green Cards that allow us to live here. I might have to ask Mrs. Ramsey for some citizenship test prep soon if and when I decide to officially become a US citizen! For now though, I still remain a "legal alien" according to the US Government ;-) One of my favorite things to do in my spare time is READ! My absolute FAVORITE book series of all time is Harry Potter!!! I also love mystery series-anything that keeps me on my toes trying to figure out how it will all end is a winner in my "book." I consider myself a TV aficionado and can't get through a minute of Parks and Rec without laughing out loud!!!

My name is Kathryn Toy and I have been teaching now for almost 8 years. I taught my first 4 years in 4th grade in Washington County, Maryland, where I grew up. Three of those years, I taught in the elementary school that I attended when I was young, Sharpsburg Elementary. I actually taught in my old 4th grade classroom! In 2010, my husband and I decided to move to North Carolina. I have been teaching at RYRES since Then, both in 2nd grade and now in 4th. I have now been married to my husband, Eric, for over 5 years. We have a wonderful 10-month old daughter, Ann Elise, a cute dog named Zoey, and 2 crazy cats, Cindy and CJ. I my free time, I enjoy spending time with family, playing with my daughter and dog, baking and pinning on Pinterest.
