1st-4th Grades

ABOUT MRS. REICHLING - 1st & 2nd Grade
Karianne Reichling was born and raised in Southern California. In April 2013,

she moved to Buhl, Idaho with her husband, Kirk, and her children. After her parents decided to purchase farmland here, Karianne and Kirk decided they would take a leap of faith and join in on the new lifestyle adventure, and Idaho seemed like a great place to raise a family. She has a son Nolan, and a daughter, Harper.  The family now lives in a recently purchased home near Filer.


Karianne has a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development and a Master’s Degree in Education. She taught elementary school in California for five years and then took a year off to stay at home with her young children. Eager to get back into the classroom doing what she loves, Karianne began teaching the 4-year-old preschool class in 2013 and now teaches first and third grades full-time.


Her hobbies include reading, cooking, and being outdoors in the sunshine. She loves to learn and instill the love of learning in the children she works with. She looks forward to walking alongside her students as they learn about Jesus and his countless blessings.


1st-4th grade is held Monday-Friday from 8:30am -3:15pm.

Students learn proficiency of skills through an integrated method of subject areas.  Literacy skills are developed in whole group, small group, and individual study according to each child’s level of ability; gradual increase of complexity allows joyful mastery for each learner within a team-teaching environment.
