This is my 9th year teaching second grade here at Fruitland Elementary. I really do love this age! I have 3 children and have been married for 23 years. I enjoy singing, dancing, and spending time with my family. I like having fun and I am always looking for ways to teach with excitement!

Anne Solis

As a third year teacher I believe I have truly found my niche as a part of the 2nd grade teaching team here at FES. The pride students feel when they’ve mastered new skills make everyday experiences feel like lifetime achievements and I’m incredibly fortunate to be a part of these moments for my students. I am married to a life long member of Fruitland and together we look forward to investing in our amazing community and school as our own boys grow and become Grizzlies!
