Laryssa Fortier, 4th Grade Classroom Teacher


Education: Keene State College, BS in Elementary Education and Psychology

Years at Riverside: 2

Teaches:  4th grade teacher

What grade you will be teaching: Grade 4 

Why Riverside? “I was drawn to Riverside because of its emphasis on building a strong community where individual interests and learning styles are valued by all faculty, parents, and fellow students. The freedom in curriculum design and implementation, as well as the small class sizes, that an independent school setting allows is refreshing. To find a school that shares my values, in one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited, is a dream come true.”

Personal: When not at school, you can find Laryssa spending time outside either horseback riding, hiking with her dog Max, mountain biking, and swimming. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, and cooking.
