Mrs. Malena Thieme

Hello Riverwood Rams!

My name is Mrs. Thieme (pronounced "Tea-me") and this will be my 11th year teaching. I moved to third grade a few years ago and I absolutely love it! I graduated from Mars Hill University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. I am married and we have a 6 year old boy who is in 1st grade here at RES and a 2 little girl who keeps us on our toes! I have always wanted to be a teacher and absolutely love working with children. I love watching each child grow and seeing them reach their goals. I look forward to meeting you at orientation and working with your child this year!
