Welcome to 1st and 2nd Grade

My name is Verna Reinbold and I am the 1st and 2nd grade teacher. I have been teaching for 30 years, 25 of them at Boise Valley Adventist School. I received my AS degree in Child and Family Science from Loma Linda University, a BS in Elementary Education from Southwestern Adventist College and a M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction from Northwest Nazarene University. Here at BVAS I have taught sign language, Pre-K and K, 1st grade, and 1st and 2nd grades combined. Both of my sons, Hauss and Joshua graduated from BVAS. I have been married for 39 years to Gary, (Yo Yo Pa) who loves to demonstrate yo yo tricks for the students at BVAS.

I grew up in Great Falls, Montana and have lived in Washington, California, Arizona and Idaho. Besides teaching, God and my family, I am interested in dachshunds, cockatiels, gardening, sign language, bike riding, reading biographies and historical fiction and learning about the Amish.

I am so thankful for the great staff, students and families at BVAS. I look forward to the Lord’s blessings each day as I work with Him to provide an enthusiastic learning environment.
