Hello! My name is Tori Klier and I am excited to be teaching second grade this year at John W. Tolbert Elementary. I graduated from James Madison University in December 2017 with my Bachelors of Science in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies, a minor is Special Education, an Algebra I endorsement, and an Honors Emphasis in Creativity. I have since completed my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at James Madison University in May 2019.
I have had experience in first, second, fourth and fifth grade, as well as a Special Education assistant, an Exceptional Learners teacher, an Occupational Therapy Preschool assistant, and a tutor for refugees of the Congo in Harrisonburg.
When I am not teaching, I love to be outside and stay active. I am a runner and am currently training for the Richmond Marathon. I love to hike with my friends and family. My favorite place in the world is on a beach with a hat and a good book in my hand.
