Ms. Elvira Berther

     My name is Elvira Berther, and I am your child’s new teacher.

     I have been employed in the West Ada School District for fourteen years. Through the years, I have spent a significant amount of time in a variety of classrooms working with students of all ages, although my course work was in Early Childhood Education. I have taught both 5th and 1st grade here at Chief Joseph and am thrilled to be in my 13th year in first grade!

     I have three beautiful and smart children.  They are 18, a senior (21) at Boise State (Elementary Education Major) and my oldest (24) is a Producer for KIVI Channel 6.  In addition to my children, I am also the proud Grammy to my Special Needs Granddog, Remington.  He is the light of our lives and your kids will be coming home with all kinds of stories about that special boy.

     During my spare time, I enjoy being in the mountains, going on long drives, and spending time with my family and granddog.


     I look forward to working together with you to make this a successful year.   If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email or call me.
