Ms. Katherine Journeaux
Hello Kindergarten Families!
My name is Katherine Journeaux (Joorno) and I will be teaching half day kindergarten.
I am so excited to join the BMSA team this year and be part of an inspiring team that share my enthusiasm for creating a love of learning and curiosity in every child! My favorite things about teaching are helping children to become readers and writers and creating fun learning experiences.
This will be my twentieth year in education! I have a BA (Hons) in Elementary Education from my home country of Scotland. I have worked in elementary schools at the K-3 stage in Scotland for around 17 years and love kindergarten most of all! Being part of a child’s first experience in school is an absolute delight and I love getting to know all my little learners. Along the way I have also taught in Australia and as an English teacher in Barcelona for two years.
I am married and have two children, a girl and a boy aged nine and six. This year my son will also start kindergarten in West Ada so I will be sharing all your excitement and emotions on our first day! We have lived in Idaho for two years now and we love the outdoors lifestyle and the sunshine. Outside of school I love yoga, hiking, paddle boarding, cycling on the green belt and reading. I also spend a lot of time at local parks with my children, come and say hi if you see us!
In our class we are going to have a lot of fun learning and creating a positive and welcoming environment for all.
If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch via email and I will strive to get back to you as quickly as I can.
