Mr. Brian Thornburg
I grew up in Bozeman, Montana fishing, camping, playing soccer, sking, and more sking. After graduating with a business degree from Montana State University, I moved to Boise in 1994 to begin a 15 year career selling computer hardware through a division of Micron and then several other technology companies.
I took the opportunity to leave the computer industry in 2009 to pursue my B.A. in Elementary Education. I taught in Boise and Meridian School District and have been at Chaparral for 10 years. I have taught 1st, 3rd, and 4th grades, but am excited to be back teaching my favorite.... 5th grade!
I have been married for 25 years to my wife Carri who is the Title teacher at Peregrine Elementary. I have 2 daughters, Charlie who just reeceived her teaching degree from The College of Idaho, and Mykenna who is a Senior at Rocky High School. When I am not teaching, I enjoy hanging out with my dogs, golfing, canoeing, running a firework stand in the summer, tinkering with my 69' Fiat car, and coaching my daughters' sports teams.
