Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Grace Sidell

I have been teaching at Hope View Elementary since January 2001.  During my tenure here at Hope, I have taught both 4th and 5th grade, and really feel that being an upper-grade teacher is truly my niche.  After working in the private sector for 10 years prior to teaching, I bring a uniquely practical perspective to my instruction... I help my students determine what aspect of their learning will be truly applicable to their current and future lives.


In addition to being a classroom teacher, I have held several other site and district positions, including:  Adminsitrative Assistant to the Principal, Summer School Principal, Student Council Advisor, Technology Manager, and as a member of various curriculum committees.


I have been married to Brett Sidell since 2009 and we have an incredibly energetic and beautiful son, who is also a proud Hope View Hawk.
