Ms. Elaine Poklemba - Kindergarten


I am thrilled to be teaching kindergarten at Alturas Elementary School! I was a para-educator in the dual immersion program at Bellevue Elementary School before earning my teaching credential in 2014. After graduating from Keene State College in New Hampshire, I moved to Ketchum where I worked in the accounting field for 20 years before realizing my true passion was working with children. I am inspired by these children who meet the challenge to learn and communicate in two languages each and every day. They are amazing!
