Mrs. Linda Belthoff
Welcome to Mrs. Belthoff's 1st Grade site! What a great adventure we will begin together at Hillsdale Elementary! I am looking forward to a fantastic school year, and I am excited to introduce myself to you!
I am originally from the East Coast (a small college town in Upstate New York), but I have lived in Boise for the past 26 years. I am married and have 3 wonderful children who keep growing up on me. My older daughter is a Boise State University graduate and a CPA who works in an accountant firm in downtown Boise, my younger daughter is a graduate of Washington State University and is in her 2nd year of Optometry school at Pacific University, and my son just graduated from Mountain View High School and will attend Boise State University for Computer Science Engineering. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, a Master of Science degree in Zoology, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. I started teaching at the college level more than 20 years ago but always knew that I wanted to teach elementary students!
The 2019-20 school year will be my 10th year teaching in the West Ada School District, and I am so excited to be teaching 1st Grade! This adventure we are all about to take will be an amazing ride!
I consider myself the luckiest person in the world to be able to do what I love, which is to spend every day working with amazing students. I am honored to be your child's teacher this year, and I look forward to making this the best year ever!
