Mrs. Assunda Becker, M.Ed.

Welcome to Kindergarten! I am looking forward to working with your family this school year. My goal is to make this a rewarding, challenging, exciting and fun school year. As an educator, it is my job to not only educate your child, but to also help your child become a lifelong learner. As a parent myself, I strive to educate your child as I would want my own children educated! To achieve this it is essential that we are partners in your child's education. It is also my belief that childhood is a journey, not a race. Keeping these things in mind we are certain to achieve our goals.

If you are like me I would want to know a little about my child’s Kindergarten teacher. I grew up in a small beach community in Southern California. My husband, Brad, and I moved here to Boise in 2005 and our daughter, Emily, was born here. Brad and I will be celebrating our 22nd anniversary this year. Emily will be Freshman this year at Renaissnace High School. She is also a competitve dancer and keeps me super busy! When I am not teaching I am Emily's Uber! When I am not working I enjoy reading books, eating good food, camping with family and friends, and watching my Emily dance!

I attended Boise State University where I earned by Bachelor’s Degree in December 2012 and my Master’s Degree in Literacy, Reading Specialist in August 2014. This is my ninth year teaching and I am so excited to join the Pleasant View Pronghorn Family! I taught Kindergarten for four years at Barbara Morgan STEM Academy and looped up to first grade for four years before returning to Kindergarten last year.

Be assured that I will do my best to make this school year an enjoyable time for your child, but also a time filled with real learning with our minds on and hands on. The skills we learn in Kindergarten are the building blocks for your child’s future success in school and in life! It is my personal goal to create a nurturing and engaging environment to make your child's Kindergarten year a great one!
