Mrs. Sydney Kuisti

I am stoked to be a part of Owyhee High School's inaugural school year. We are so excited to welcome everyone to the Storm family. :)

I will be teaching English 9 and Honors English 10. I am also excited to be the advisor for the OHS National Honor Society chapter.

I am the oldest of 3 and I was born and raised here in the Treasure Valley. I finished my undergraduate at Boise State University (Go Broncos!) in 2019 and completed my Masters in 2020. I married my high school sweetheart and the love of my life in August 2017. We have a German Shepherd Dog named Whiskey. He is the sweetest and cutest pup, and he just celebrated his first birthday. My husband and I share a love of traveling and the great outdoors. I have traveled to Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Wales, England, Germany, Austria and Egypt. We are HUGE Disney fans and we love to visit Disneyland and Disney World. When we are not traveling, we love visiting my family's cabin, going on hikes, and bowling. Some of my hobbies include playing movie scores on my piano, reading mystery stories, and watching classic films.

I have always been passionate about reading and writing, and I believe everyone has a story and a voice to share. I am looking forward to fostering students to grow their skills and shape their worldviews. It is going to be a fabulous school year and I look forward to getting to know my students! :)
