Hello! My name is Elaine Kiefer. I graduated from Portland State University with a major in elementary education and a minor in special education.  I have been teaching since 1980.  My first job was at a private school in Portland, Oregon and was at the third-fourth grade level.  After two years I relocated to Seaside and with the exception of teaching one year in Astoria, have taught here ever since.  I have taught all grades Kindergarten through fifth grade.  I have taught first grade for over 10 years now.  Part of those years I was a substitute teacher, so I could still be at home with my two children(I am a grandmother, now).  It was always my dream to be a teacher and even after all these years I feel fortunate to get a paycheck for doing what I love to do!
