Mrs. Assunda Becker, M.Ed.

Welcome to my STEMtastic world! 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 first grade teacher. I grew up in a small beach community in Southern California. My husband and I moved here to Boise in 2005 and my daughter was born here. My daughter, Emily, will be in 6th grade at Idaho Fine Arts Academy as a dance major. 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, 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 sixth year teaching the W.I.S.E. Way at Barbara Morgan STEM Academy and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else! I taught Kindergarten for three years here at Barbara Morgan and looped up to first grade two years ago.

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 first grade 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 first grade year a great one!
