Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Susan Boyle


My name is Susan Boyle, and I am so excited to be teaching 7th grade ELA at Sawtooth this year. My husband and I moved to Boise last summer, and we are really happy to be back. We lived here about 23 years ago, and two of our kids were born in Boise. Although it looks A LOT different now, it still feels like home to us. 

I am originally from Pennsylvania and received my teaching degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Since then, I have lived in eight different states and taught for 14 years: six years in elementary school in Florida, seven years in middle school in Colorado, and 6th grade last year here at Sawtooth. I have two pups at home- a Shih Tzu and a Mini Goldendoodle- and three children all grown and living on their own in Florida and Nevada. When I am not in school, much of my time is spent travelling and visiting with them. I also really enjoy reading, running, and hiking. I can't decide if I love the mountains or the beach more, so I try to do "research" on the two as often as possible. So far, it's a tie! 

I can't wait to have an awesome year with your kiddos!
