Mr. Brian Rinderknecht

Hello. My name is Mr. Rinderknecht (Wren-der-connect).  The 2021-2022 school year will be my 11th at Lone Mountain where I've taught both 4th and 5th grades.  This year I am excited to be teaching 6th grade Math and Social Studies.

Here is a little about me:  I was born and raised on the North Carolina coast (Outer Banks). I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and an additional certification in middle school social studies. In 2018, I achieved National Board Certification! In my spare time I enjoy reading, hiking, visiting historic places, traveling and camping.   

6th grade is an exciting year of challenges, changes and academic growth for students.  I am looking forward to a great year of learning, Eagles Soar to Success!
