4th Grade Classrooms

Emily Gabrisch

Hi!  My name is Emily Gabrisch.  This will be my 18th year with the Ritenour School District. Teaching is a passion I’ve had since I was a small child and I knew this is exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I enjoy creating a classroom community, building relationships and facing challenges.  When I am not in school, you’ll find me rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals downtown, traveling, reading or playing with my dog, Pepper!  I am very excited to meet my new fourth graders and have an amazing year of fun and learning.  I can’t wait to get started!


Toby Meyer

Hello, My name is Toby Meyer, and I have taught in the Ritenour school district for 2 years, both of which have been at Buder! I am going into my 10th year of teaching and I am excited to join the 4th-grade team this upcoming year. I focus my classroom on relationship-building and respect. I firmly believe that every child has the potential and ability to achieve great things in life. I am honored to be a part of that journey for them! My hobbies include spending time with my family, especially my own three children. I also love music and old video games, as well as attending my classroom student's out-of-school activities such as sports games, and recitals. This year is going to be a blast, I can't wait to meet everyone!

Tina Nichols

My name is Tina Nichols and this is my 10th year at Buder. I have been a teacher for 29 years. I have been married to my husband Scott for 27 years. We have two children. Maddie, who is a 5th-grade teacher and Drew is a Senior in high school. He plays baseball for Eureka Legion. When I am not at school, I like to read, listen to music, scrapbook, watch Drew play baseball, and hang out with friends and family.
