Shayne (Morgan) Rathfon was born and raised in Idaho Falls. She is the oldest of 5 children and loves spending time with her family. She graduated from Skyline High School and went on to attend Idaho State University. She later married her best friend and adventure partner, Sylvan.

Mrs. Rathfon and her husband love to spend time outdoors. Nearly every weekend in the summer they can be found hiking, fishing, backpacking, camping, and exploring many of the beautiful places Idaho has to offer. Their dog, Jagger, loves to tag along. She also enjoys sports, reading, scrapbooking, and playing games. 

The summer of 2020 the Rathfons were blessed with their first baby, a beautiful daughter. Being parents together has become their new favorite adventure. Mrs. Rathfon considers her family her greatest blessing. 

Mrs. Rathfon earned her bachelor’s degree in Educational Interpreting from Idaho State University and worked as a sign language interpreter for 5 years. Later, she went on to earn her teaching certificate. Mrs. Rathfon absolutely loves being a kindergarten teacher! She loves working with her students and sharing in their love for life, enthusiasm, and wonder. She believes that each child is special and can be successful. Through small group instruction, strong teacher-student relationships, and love, she hopes to help each child reach their highest potential and develop a love for learning. Mrs. Rathfon creates a "family" like classroom where everyone is respected and belongs. Mrs. Rathfon loves being a part of the "Alturas Family," and she can't wait to meet our newest members.
