Name of staff member: Adrienne Kough
Position in USD #435: Fifth grade teacher at Garfield
Years in this position: Six
Previous teaching experience: My first teaching job was at Garfield in 2007. I was a substitute for seven years before that.
What inspired you to go into education? I was a freshman in college not knowing what I wanted to do with my life when my high school youth pastor said he thought I would make a good teacher. He saw something in me that I didn't see in myself.
A memorable teaching moment: I love to take my homeroom to my farm at the end of every year. We have a hayride, grill hotdogs and run through my barn. The kids love it!
