Adventure Days

Early Childhood

Mrs. Beed - Pre-Kindergarten

ritaI am so excited for the opportunity to spend my days teaching (and learning!) with your children.  I also look forward to getting to know all of you as well!

I was born and raised in Nebraska (GO BIG RED!). My husband Matt and I have been married for 33 years. We have two sons Devin and Dalton.  Devin is married to a wonderful girl & they have blessed us with two amazing grandsons; Jace who is a very excited Second Grader & Jaxon who is a very busy 3 year old.  Our son Dalton graduated from Utah State with a degree in Agriculture and Dairy Sciences & is now employed at Performance Plus of Idaho.

My family moved to Idaho from Nebraska almost 17 yrs. ago. We absolutely love it here...Idaho is now home to us!

 This will be my 15th year teaching Pre-K at Immanuel.  My previous experience working with children expands over the past 30 years.  It has included owning and operating my own licensed Home Day Care in Nebraska for 10 years.  I have also been a Sunday School Teacher for various age groups, and Matt & I served as Youth Directors at our Home Church in Nebraska. 

My main objective with our class is for your child to have a positive learning experience and to LOVE school!!

Thank you in advance for all of your support, prayers, and encouragement.

 Mrs. Silver - Pre-Kindergarten

sandiI have been teaching at Immanuel since 2008.  I started out by subbing all grades and then taught afternoon preschool.  It was in the following spring that I began teaching both, morning and afternoon classes.  Prior to Immanuel, I taught at Clover Lutheran School in Buhl. I taught 3 - 5 year old preschool and worked in the library.

My favorite part of my job is sharing Gods' love with my students!  I am blessed to come to work here and share Godly values and principles, with everyone I come into contact with.

Thank you for entrusting your children to Immanuel, as well as myself!  

Mrs. Ginder - Pre-Kindergarten


ginderfamilyHello, I’m Mrs. Ginder. This is my second year teaching pre-kindergarten at Immanuel Lutheran School. I feel blessed to be at such a wonderful school. Prior to this, I worked as a nurse for 12 years. I precepted, trained new nurses and taught nursing students during my career. I loved the teaching aspect of nursing and I developed a desire to teach full time. 

I am a mother of 2 boys. One is at the Immanuel daycare and the other is here at the school in 2nd grade. We love hiking, 4-wheeling, snowmobiling and all things outdoors. 

I am passionate about teaching young minds and helping grow. I look forward to working with you and your children.

Mrs. Meyerhoeffer - Kindergarten



After teaching in kindergarten for over 25 years, I can confidently say that kindergarten is the best grade to teach!  Kindergarteners are full of excitement and energy.  They appreciate the small things and their love for learning new things is infectious.

I was born and raised in Twin Falls.  I attended school at University of Arizona and Boise State where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in elementary education. This will be my 16th year teaching at Immanuel Lutheran School.

I look forward to a wonderful year of learning and laughter with your child.  This is a magical age!  Let's enjoy their journey!
