Mrs. Amy Evey
This is my 17th year of teaching and my 4th year at Desert Sage Elementary!! I'm so excited to be part of this Coyote community! Before arriving at Desert Sage, I worked for 13 years in Nampa. I taught 3 years of Kindergarten, 7 years of 1st grade, and this is my 7th year of doing 2nd grade. Hands down, 2nd grade is the best grade to teach!!
I grew up in Payette, and went to the University of Idaho--GO VANDALS! My husband and I live in Meridian with our two boys. Asher is 7 and is starting 2nd grade!! Campbell is almost 5 and is starting Pre-K!! Being in a house full of boys is a little crazy, but fun and surprising as well. :)
I've wanted to be a teacher since I can remember. I love working with kids and showing them all the ways to help in their learning. It's so exciting to see them make a connection and have the lighbulb go off. I love building relationships with them as well and enjoy seeing them well after they were in my class. I'm about teaching the whole child and work to guide them to be the biggest stakeholders in their learning. We celebrate successes, no matter how small.
I'm looking forward to a year of learning and discovery!
