Peggy Jo Porter

My name is Peggy Porter. I was lucky enough to grow up on a farm in beautiful Cub River, Idaho. Cub River Canyon is my favorite place to go camping and 4-wheeling. I graduated from Utah State and I still love watching USU sports, especially basketball and football. Go Aggies! I live in Smithfield with 2 beagles and 1 cat. Dash is the twelve-year-old, sweet, calm dog and Auggie is the adorably naughty 20-month old puppy. One of my favorite things to do is go on long walks with my dogs. I never thought I was much of a cat person until Katniss adopted me. She changed my mind about cats. This is my thirty-fourth year teaching first grade. Teaching first grade is so rewarding because the kids grow so much in one year - physically, academically, and socially. Also, they say and do such funny things. It makes each day a new adventure. After a day at school, my day is complete if I can have a Dr. Pepper, Doves dark chocolate, and an hour of television.

Terra Stanko

My name is Terra Stanko, and I have been teaching at Greenville for 5 years now...I am excited to start my 6th year at this awesome school!  I absolutely love children, and I love teaching 1st Grade!  However, I feel like I learn more every day from my first-graders than I teach them.  There is never a dull moment in 1st grade--first graders always do and say the funniest things!  I love watching them grow and learn so much during their year in 1st grade! 

I have four amazing children--3 daughters and 1 son.  My two oldest daughters, Lauren and Whitney, are both married.  My son, Braden, recently graduated from high school, and my youngest daughter, Ella, will be in 8th grade this year.  Lauren and her husband had their first baby in December--a GIRL!  I am SO excited about being a GRANDMA!  
 
I especially love to spend time with my family, and I really enjoy time outdoors hiking, kayaking, and riding bikes. I also love to read, play the piano, watch movies, and be up in the mountains, near lakes and rivers, or on the Oregon Coast!  Some of my favorite foods/treats are Costa Vida, Jelly Belly jelly beans, chocolate, and mexican food.

Marla Wood

My name is Mrs. Wood.  I am the mother of 5 children- Autumn, Ashlyn, Natalie, Ryan and Evan. My husband's name is Austin. We live in Nibley. I enjoy hiking and nature.  I like to meditate and listen to inspirational music and podcasts. I love to catch a glimpse of rainbows, sunsets, unique flowers, and wildlife. I really like chocolate.  My favorite treat is Devil's Food Cake with vanilla ice cream. If I was going to go out on the town here in Cache Valley, I would enjoy going to a movie, hiking or going out to eat anywhere, but I especially like Chili's and Olive Garden. My family loves to go on vacations. A dream vacation for me would be visiting any beautiful national park.
 
I am happy to be a part of the Greenville family and have been so impressed with the students and parents.  First grade is an amazing year of school.  We will learn so much together.
