Welcome New Teachers

We are excited to introduce our new teachers to Sunrise! Read about and see each new staff member!

Middle School Strength Class/Ag Class: Mr. McBride

I graduated from Farmington High School. I have lived in the US, Germany, and England. I played college baseball at Longview College in Lee’s Summit, MO and obtained an Associate’s in education from Mineral Area College, and a Bachelor’s in English Education from Missouri Baptist. I enjoy playing sports, video games, and guitar. My wife, Ashley, and I have been married since 2018. We have a 1-year-old daughter named Aria, and a Shih Tzu/Poodle named Louie.

Librarian: Mrs. Morfeld

I’ve lived in Jefferson County my entire life. I grew up in Pevely, graduated from Herculaneum High School, and obtained an associate degree from Jefferson College in 1991. Then, I got married and had children. Haha! 
I’ve been married to my husband for 31 years. We have two adult daughters (ages 30 and 22). 

I substitute taught for many years before becoming the librarian assistant at Festus Middle School. I went back to school in 2016 to get my bachelors degree and K-12 LMS certification. 

My hobbies include reading, sewing & crafts of all kinds, cooking & baking,  being a dog mom, and tending to my 7 hens. 

I’m excited to a part of the Sunrise team!

My name is Adrianne Klempert. This will be my fourth year teaching and I am so excited to be joining the Sunrise team! I will be teaching 4th and 5th grade ELA. I enjoy hanging poolside, making projects with my Cricut, and spending time with my friends and family!

4th-5th Social Studies: Ms. Hays

My name is Lydia Hays and I graduated from Central Methodist University with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I will be teaching fourth and fifth grade Social Studies and I am excited to be working at Sunrise! I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling, thrifting, ice cream, and anything Magnolia.
