Miss KC Thowless
I have always wanted to work with kids with special needs and when I found teaching I fell in love with it! Having a family member with disabilities has given me the first hand experience and passion to help kids build the skills to be independent and achieve their own milestones to be succesful in life. I want to help kids learn strategies to be successful!
I am a Boise native; I graduated from the Ambrose School. I attended the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) for my undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education. I hold my Masters in Educational Leadership from Boise State. After college I moved to Coeur d'Alene, where I took my first teaching position. Living up north was beautiful, and so much fun, but I am happy to be back in Boise, near family and friends.
This is my second year teaching at Summerwind STEM, but is my 11th year in education! Previously I taught special education as a Resource teacher and have also taught 1st grade, 4th grade, and even Driver's education!
In my free time I enjoy cooking, golfing, spending time at the water, camping, traveling in and out of state, and taking coffee walks with my dog.
