Ms. Stephanie Riechers

Welcome to 5th Grade!!!  I'm very excited to start our school year!  This is my 21st year teaching and my 14th year in 5th grade.  I am the reading, writing and social studies teacher. I am very excited to get to know your child. 
My philosopy is "No one is born a great reader, becoming a great reader takes practice!"
My class is set up using the workshop model.  Students will be immersed in books and will have lots of opportunities to read and write and share.  We will be reading independently, with small groups and with the whole group on extra special books.
Please see my Parent Orientation video to learn more about our classroom.

  • I am so honored to be allowed the opportunity to teach your child this year!   

    My name is Stephanie Riechers and as hard as it is to believe, I have been teaching since 1996!   My own educational career began at Benedictine College, where I received my BA in Elementary and Special Education.  I went on to Baker University for my Master's in Education in 2003.  In 2013, I achieved the highly coveted National Board Certification. I am currently working on my Reading Specialist degree through Park University. Platte County R-3 School District has been my home since 2003.  
    I have taught 5th grade since being with Platte County. Siegrist departmentalizes which means our students will rotate between two different teachers.  My emphasis is in the area of Communication Arts and Social Studies.  I love what I do, and I am very passionate about reading.  I make it a top priority to find books your child will love to read! I teach my homeroom and Ms. Whitaker's homeroom.
    I have two children.  My son, Dalton, and my daughter, Demi, are working their way through the Platte County School District.  I look forward to a great year.  I cannot thank you enough for trusting, supporting, and sharing your child with me.
