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 thirteen 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 12th year in first grade!

     I have three beautiful and smart children.  They are 17, a junior (20) at Boise State (Elementary Education Major) and my oldest (23) is a reporter for KIVI Channel 6.  In addition to my children, I am also the proud mom of two grown step-sons, and I also acquired an energetic step grandson.  My significant other, Stacy and I enjoy playing games, listening to music, swimming and just spending time together with our children.  In addition to the kids, we also have two awesome male cats named Simon and Titus and a grand-dog named Remington.  I'm sure your child will come home sharing stories about these three.


     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.
