Mrs. Ari Venteicher (Mrs. V)
Hello GHES students, families, and community members!
I am Ari Venteicher (Mrs. V), the third grade English and Language Arts teacher at Glenn Hills Elementary School. I am thrilled to engage in a year-long partnership in supporting your child academically in reading, writing, speaking, and listening!
This is my third year at GHES and my first year teaching third grade. I was a fifth grade teacher prior, an Augmented Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher, and before that; I was a communication specialist for the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Washington, D.C.
I fell in love with teaching while I was living in Europe. I lived in an Eastern European country next to Turkey, also called Georgia. I taught English as a second language over there to K-12 grade students for over two years and decided then that I wanted to become a teacher when I came back to the US. Nothing makes me happier than witnessing my students fall in love with reading, writing, and being creative thinkers! I will work hard to develop what my students have learned already from their families and their previous teachers.
When I’m not teaching, I’m gardening 🪴 , playing tennis 🎾 , crocheting and knitting 🧶 , or visiting my relatives.
I look forward to a year full of learning together! Go Gators!
