Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Alli Wine and I have been living in Durango for 13 years. I am originally from Flagstaff, AZ. I moved to Durango to attend Fort Lewis College where I majored in Elementary Education and ran cross-country. I did my student teaching at Riverview and was lucky enough to get hired as a first grade teacher!
This is my eleventh year teaching. All eleven years have been at Riverview in first grade.
I love living in Durango and getting to take advantage of all the amazing things Durango has to offer. I love to run, road bike, mountain bike, hike, camp, fish, ski, snowshoe and just enjoy the beautiful weather that Durango has to offer! My family is all still in Arizona and I often go to visit them. I spend most of my visits in the Phoenix area where my two sisters, two brother-in-laws, 3 nephews and niece are living! I recently got engaged and will be marrying my fiance, Chris, next June! His family is in Florida, not as easy of a location to get to for visits, but we make our way that direction, too!
I enjoy watching many different sports! My favorites to watch are professional football, college basketball and professional baseball. My favorite teams are the Denver Broncos, University of Arizona, Kansas University and the Arizona Diamondbacks. I grew up cheering for UofA and KU and started cheering for the Diamondbacks when they were created as a team. The Broncos have become my football team of choice in the last 14 years of living here in Durango!
I look forward to having your student in my class! Please let me know if you have any questions!
