Hello everyone! My name is Annie Friend and I have taught for 18 years - all at Seltzer and in 4th grade! I was born and raised in Andover, Kansas and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Wichita State University in 2005. In December 2018, I graduated with a Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning from Friend’s University. I am a strong believer in the importance of a good education and making learning FUN!  In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing with my dogs, traveling, playing bingo, and reading. I got married on August 24, 2019 to Sam and we have 2 dog children - Petunia and Lucy. I am so excited to have the opportunity to be your child’s teacher this year! We are going to ROCK 4th grade!

Mrs. Chelsea Snyder

4th Grade Teacher

Hello Seltzer Spartans!  I am Mrs. Snyder and this will be my 18th year of teaching 4th grade.  I have spent the last 15 years at Seltzer.  I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Emporia State University in December 2004.  In May 2018, I earned my Master’s degree in Teaching and Learning from Friend’s University.  I believe every child deserves a strong education.  I strive to create a classroom environment where each child is encouraged and challenged to do their personal best. My goal is that when each student leaves my class, they have a desire to be a lifelong learner. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, and being outside.  I love to watch Disney movies with my four daughters, Allie, Maddyn, Caydee, and Kambelle.  My husband, Kendall, is also a teacher in Valley Center. I am looking forward to an AWESOME year!
