Mary Rice


Hello! My name is Mary Rice.  Welcome to first grade in room 208.  I am excited to be teaching first grade this year and I am looking forward to a fantastic year.


This will be my 31st year of teaching.  I have had the opportunity to teach many different grade levels and at many different schools.   I have taught at Wilder MST, Richard Green Central Park, West Central Academy, and Pillsbury MST.  I have been at Hale for 14 years.   I am married and have 3 children. My husband works at DeLaSalle High School in the business office.  He also teaches a personal finance class as well as coaches football and softball.   My oldest, Cody, is 27.  He is an assistant warehouse manager at New French Bakery and works in the kitchen at Applebees on the weekends.  My middle child, Jack, is 24.  He is a social worker and is currently the director of the Boys and Girls Club in Baraboo, WI.   My youngest, Mickey, is 22 and will be a super senior at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse.  She plans to major in community health and wellness with a minor in nutrition.  She spent the summer living, taking classes and working in LaCrosse.    In my spare time, I enjoy reading, biking, and many other outdoor activities.
