Hi everyone! My name is Kathy Sides and I'm entering into my 19th year of teaching first grade here at Grandview. I've also taught at many of the area schools in my student teaching and substitute teaching back in the day. I received my Elementary Education degree from East Central University in Ada, with endorsements in Language Arts/Reading, Math, and Social Studies. While at East Central, I had the life changing experience of a blind date, which led to me marrying my husband, Joe. Together we have two children; Kole, who is in the Early Childhood program here at Grandview, and Jaci Jo who is attending daycare. We are blessed to have our own business and have our own ranch east of Comanche. Our family stays fairly busy with two little ones and our businesses; but in our spare time we love spending time with the animals and attending lots of ranch and horse events. I hope you've enjoyed learning about me as much as I will enjoy learning about your little one in first grade.
