Mrs. Axtell

     Hello students and families! One of my favorite parts of teaching is that I get to meet so many wonderful new people each year. Here is a little about me and my experience so you can get to know me better, too. 
     I am a born and raised Idahoan and live in Boise. My husband is also a teacher, in middle school Art. Along with our parents, daughters, friends, and two adorable dogs, we love exploring life in Idaho and beyond. I like to bicycle, snowboard, paddle, hike, and read. I feel fortunate to be part of this area's fantastic and welcoming community! 
     Of course, I am always looking forward to a school year full of learning adventures with my students, too. This is my 26th year teaching in the West Ada District. After four years at Meridian High School, I came to Star Elementary. My teaching experience includes Psychology, Special Education, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. I find great joy in both teaching and learning. At every level, I have remained passionate about guiding students to persevere and grow as much as possible from any given starting point.
