Ms. Golder

Hi! I am Ryshel Golder, a first-grade teacher! This year marks my 13th year teaching in the West Ada School District! Before teaching 1st Grade I taught for five years in Special Education.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Idaho in Early Childhood Education and Special Education. I have a Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration from Arkansas State University, Jonesboro. I was born in the Reno/Sparks, NV area, and moved to northern Idaho in 2001 and moved to Boise in 2008. I married my husband Steven in October of 2015 and we are parents to two wonderful little girls. What a gift to be a part of the parent club.

Outside of teaching my hobbies include going to the beach, shopping, decorating or rearranging our home, photograpy, and more shopping usually on Amazon or Target! I love the color gold (hence the last name and my Vandals), I love history and often watch the history channel for fun, my favorite season is late summer early fall, I am obsessed with sweet tea in the summer and skinny white mochas in the colder months. I stock up on Ferrero Rocher chocolates, Anthropologie candles, and holiday decor :).

I'm looking forward to all the adventures of this school year and partnering with all of you. Should you ever need anything please feel free to contact me at any time.
