Mrs. Shafter

   Welcome to STEM class at BMSA. My name is Lynnea Shafter and I'm the K-5 STEM Specialist. I grew up in Huntington Beach, CA and received my degree from CSULB. I taught for ten years at the juvenile hall in Orange County before moving to Idaho with my husband Jerry and daughter Allison in 2005.  I was at Sawtooth Middle School for two years and Heritage Middle School for six years where I taught both 8th grade physical science and astronomy. It has truly been a privilege to move over to BMSA when we opened in 2013 as the STEM Specialist.
   STEM education has been my passion ever since I attended Space Camp for teachers during 1999 in Huntsville, AL. Having been born the year we first walked on the moon and having a father who worked in the aerospace industry I guess it's really been my passion since birth. 
   I was thrilled to be offered the chance to be the BMSA STEM Specialst and have really enjoyed getting to know all of the students and the elementary atmosphere. We've had a great five years and I'm looking forward to each day of the ones to come.Thanks so much for the opportunity to work with your student(s) and family this year.
