2nd Grade


Ruth Broxterman


This is my fifteenth year as a classroom teacher having taught fifth, first, and second grades.  Prior to teaching, I had a brief career in the corporate world.  I love teaching 2nd grade!  I have three amazing kiddos Ethan, Logan (both at Mill Creek Middle School), and Gwen, who is a first grader here at Riverview, and one crazy cat.  I love to share stories about them all with my students. 

Emily Tryon


My name is Emily Tryon! This will be my 6th year teaching. I have taught Kindergarten for 5 years and this will be my first year in Second Grade! I'm so excited for the adventure ahead! I graduated from Kansas State University (GO CATS!!!). K-State is where I met my lovely husband, Josh. We live in De Soto with our precious micro-mini Goldendoodle. I can’t wait to help your child learn, grow, and love this school as much as I do. We are in for a fantastic year ahead!

Tori Mahaffey


Hello! I am Tori Mahaffey and have been teaching at Riverview since the fall of 2018. In the fall of 2017, I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education at Pittsburg State University. Right now, I am working on getting my masters in leadership at Pittsburg State University. I will graduate in May 2024. Currently, I live in Bonner Springs with my husband, Brandon, who is an electronic engineer at Black and Veatch, my almost three-year-old daughter, and our new kitten Cosmo. For fun, I like to go out for tacos or stay at home and binge watch The Office. I look forward to being your child’s teacher, so I can help them grow in second grade!

Hi, my name is Ashley Nguyen! Nguyen is pronounced ‘win.’ I grew up in this area and graduated from Mill Valley High School. I then attended KU where I earned my Bachelor's in Elementary Education and Master's in Curriculum and Learning with a focus on English as a Second Language. I taught in the Leavenworth School District for six years before coming to Riverview. This will be my 13th year teaching and third year teaching 2nd grade. My husband and I have two sons. Parker is four years old and Theodore will be two in December. We have two little dogs named Daisy and Peanut.
