A Little Bit About Me

I got married over the summer, so I am still in the process of changing my name from "Ms. Larson" to "Mrs. Spurlock."

I am from Colorado, but I have been living all over the mountain west for the past few years. I began my career teaching all of the middle school refugee students in Missoula, MT. In 2016, Missoula became the first and only refugee resettlment community in Montana, and I loved helping the school district and community set up their supports for EL students. Last year, my then-fiancé started working in Boise, so I moved too. I am excited now to live in Boise and learn more about the art and advocacy of teaching EL students.

I love doing anything outdoors, dancing, cooking, and travelling.
