Fourth Grade Teachers

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!!!  

I’m Amanda Issacs and I was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.  I got my degree from UNC-Charlotte.  I have taught third and fourth grade.  We have two dog-children, whippets named Ernie and Gracie.  We have two nieces and a nephew.  I like to read, hike, sew and bake in my spare time.

I’m Teresa (Terry) Jones and was raised in Vacaville, California.  I got my degree at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas.  I have taught kindergarten, first, fourth, fifth along with middle school technology and science.  Our family has lived in 5 states, California, Michigan, Maryland, Kansas and North Carolina, as well as Germany.  I enjoy reading, baking, gardening and playing with my two dogs, Molly and Daisy.

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. 

 I’m Shelley Holland and I was born in Charlotte, NC. I got my BS degree in Elementary Education from UNC- Greensboro. I have taught grades 1-5. This is my 21st year of teaching (10 in private school). I have been married for 17 years and have a daughter in first grade. I like to cook and read.
