Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Kathryn Bicher

Welcome to 7th grade English!


This is my first year teaching at Cope, but prior to this year, I taught at Moore. I grew up in RUSD, attended Crafton Elementary, then Moore for 7th & 8th grade. I went on to graduate from REV and then attended Riverside Community College. After RCC I transferred to UC Berkeley and I got my degree in literature with a minor in creative writing.

After graduation, I worked in the business world as a corporate trainer and later as an executive manager. After several years there, I knew I wanted to teach, so I made plans to go back to school. I now have my master’s in education from the University of Redlands and I am really excited to have returned to RUSD, now as a teacher!

I have always loved to read, and books are definitely a passion of mine. My other hobbies include traveling, attending concerts and live sporting events, going to movies, hiking, and spending time with my family and friends. I have a daughter named Ava who is in 4th grade, and she is my favorite little human on the planet.

This year I will be teaching English 7 and I look forward to working with all of you through distance learning and beyond!
