Mrs. Kirsti Kornak
Hello! I have had the pleasure of being a teacher for 27 years. I have worked in many different positions throughout the years. My teaching career started at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I received my undergraduate teaching degree. From there, I taught 2nd grade in Phoenix, AZ. I taught there for 10 years and during that time I received my Masters Degree in Education with a focus on curriculum from the University of Arizona. I also received my ELL (English Language Learners) endorsement from the University of Arizona. I moved to Boise, Idaho in 2002 and have worked for the Westada School District ever since. In the Westada District, have worked as a Title I teacher for 15 years and for the past 2 years I have been the EL teacher for Kindergarten through 2nd grade. I feel very fortunate to have such a rewarding job. With every new day, with every new year, with every new student ... there is always something new to learn and to smile about!
