Degrees and Certifications:

Miss KC Thowless


Welcome to Extended Resoure!

This is my first year teaching at Summerwind STEM, but is my 10th 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! I love working in special education because there are so many things to teach and to learn when working with students with special needs!

I am an Idaho native. I attended the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) for my undergraduate degrees in Elementary Education and Special Education. 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. I am currently completing my graduate degree in Educational Leadership. When I am not teaching I enjoy hiking with my dog, traveling, golfing, camping, cooking, and relaxing in the river!

I am very excited to get to know all of you and build wonderful relationships with all my students and families. Parents and teachers are huge advocates for children and I am thankful to be able to support your child’s needs.


Some of my favorite things are:

Colors: neutrals and pastels

Animal: dogs

Food: chips and salsa

Treat: dark chocolate

Drink: coffee
