Mr. Nathan Rihn/Strings-Orchestra Teacher, Grades 6-8


I have been a resident of Berkeley County for almost a year now.  I grew up in Butler, PA and graduated from Knoch High School.  Growing up in western PA, I became a big fan of Pittsburgh sports teams.  I love rooting on the Penguins, Pirates, and Steelers.   I currently live in Hedgesville and go to St. Burnadette's Parish.   I have two dogs; a Whippet Terrier mix named Presley (named after Elvis Presley), and an Italian Greyhound named Felix (named after Felix Mendelssohn). My soon to be wife teaches music at Valley View Elementary.  Some of you know her as Ms. Koposko, but will be Mrs. Rihn next year.  Apart from teaching privately, I enjoy golfing, landscaping, and archery hunting.  I am looking forward to my first year of teaching.
