Mrs. Ontiveros and Mrs. Ribble

If you haven't noticed there will be a lot of changes to our faculty next year. Mrs. Kristen Ontiveros is going to Sage Creek Elementary to teach 2nd grade and we will miss her terribly. Mrs. Jessica Ribble is going to be our full time kindergarten teacher.

Mrs. O says, "I began my teaching career at Hobble Creek. I have loved being able to help students read for the first time. They get so excited. It is going to be hard to leave Hobble Creek because of the friendships I have made with the students, faculty,and community. The one thing I will treasure the most is walking down the hallway and hearing a students yell, "Mrs. O" I will really miss that the most. I want to thank Hobble Creek for helping me become the educator I am today. "

Mrs. O's favorite color is yellow, her favorite book is Anne of Green Gables, she loves softball, watermelon and red velvet cake. She is really good at cheering for her daughters during their softball games and loves to travel with her family. She hopes to run a marathon this summer and would love to learn how to surf. Her wish is that every child could have a loving home. Sage Creek is sure lucky to have you Mrs. Ontiveros and you will be missed!

Mrs. Jessica Ribble has been at Hobble Creek for 3 years and is excited to now teach AM and PM classes.  She is from CA and came to BYU where she met her husband and stayed in Utah. She earned her early childhood education degree at BYU and thought she would teach special ed. She ended up teaching preschool instead for 14 years. Mrs. Ribble just graduated from SUU with her Master's in Education. She is a dedicated scouter as well and has her Wood Badge. She goes to scout camp every summer with her family. She loves the color purple, she loves to read a lot of different kinds of books. She is a BYU sports fan and loves ice cream cake. She is really good at sewing and loves to spend time with her family. Everyone thinks she is funny when she uses different voices when telling a story. This summer she is going to California for a few weeks and would love to learn to rock climb. She wishes everyone could love reading.
