Mr. Brian Thornburg
I grew up in Bozeman, Montana fishing, camping, playing soccer, sking, and more sking. After graduating with a business degree from Montana State University, I moved to Boise in 1994 to begin a 15 year career selling computer hardware through a division of Micron and then several other technology companies.
I took the opportunity to leave the computer industry in 2009 to pursue my B.A. in Elementary Education. I taught in Boise and Meridian School District and have been at Chaparral the last 6 years. After teaching 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, I am excited to again teach 5th grade faciltiating student sucess from elementary to middle school..... And beyond!
I have been married for 22 years to my wife Carri who teaches 4th grade at Peregrine Elementary. I have 2 daughters, Charlie who is a Freshman at The College of Idaho, and Mykenna who is an 8th grader at Sawtooth Elementary. When I am not teaching, I enjoy golfing, canoeing, tinkering with my 69' Fiat car, and coaching my daughters' sports teams.
