MVA Elementary K-2/ Gifted

Hi, I am Lori Rice and I teach K-2 Elementary and K-12 gifted here at MVA. I was born and raised in Kansas, completing my Bachelor's Degrees in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education at Kansas State University.  I have taught elementary for the past 25 years at Wamego.  This next year I will complete my masters degree at Emporia State in gifted and talented.

My passions are STEM education, social studies and helping each student find their unique perspectives and talents.   When  I am not working I stay busy with three kids. My 21 year old is in the Air National Guard working on his pharmaceutical degree at KU, my 14 year old is a freshman with a passion for sports, medicine and friends, and my 10 year old will be in fifth grade working on developing his golf skills and coding languages. We live with my parents in a multi-generational home which allows for family and fun. I love to read, run, do puzzles and spend time with family and friends.
