Hello I am Mrs. Hunter and I will be teaching for Mrs. Yacynych this year. 
 Below is the link to my website.

Hello! I love teaching Kindergarten and creating a classroom atmosphere that promotes thinking and hard work. This is my eighth year of teaching and my sixth year at Richland Elementary. Go Rams!

I am a proud graduate from Richland High School. I then went to the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown to obtain my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. After graduation, I accepted a position teaching first grade in the Meyersdale Area School District. The following year, I taught Kindergarten at Cougar Elementary in Manassas Park, Virginia. I then accepted a 4th grade position at Richland Elementary. I moved back to Kindergarten after a year in fourth and have been in this position for the past four years. I greatly enjoy continuing my education and I obtained my Master's Degree in Literacy with a Reading Specialist Certificate through Clarion University.

Field Trip Photos

Check out the photos from our field trip to Faranda's Farm in the albums section of this site! The kids went for a hay ride, fed alpacas (and one llama!), played games, and made a craft. At each station, they answered true and false questions about monkeys with a thumbs up or thumbs down. Everyone had a blast!

Field Trip Reminders

Tomorrow is our Field Trip to Faranda's Farm and Mountain Playhouse!

Please remember:
  • Students need to bring a bagged lunch with items that can all be thrown away. (i.e. paper bag with a sandwich in a baggie, bag of chips, apple, etc.)
  • Students should wear tennis shoes (sneakers).
  • Students should wear their blue Richland shirts.
  • Students should not bring money or electronics to school that day.
