Mrs. Reilly Herrud

Welcome to our EL Home Page! 

My Why 

My motto is, "We are a community, we work together to learn together." As Idaho has grown so has our EL population. My goal to help ALL students feel supported and successful in school. I also want to foster a passion for learning and support students both in their home language and in English. I love seeing students' eyes light up when they understand something or feel successful after working so hard. 

My Background 

I was born and rasied in Tacoma, Washington. I moved out here at 18 to attend Boise State University and fell in love with everything Idaho had to offer. I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a master's degree in Literacy from BSU. GO Broncos! I hold a Reading Speicalist endorsement and am currently earning an endorsement in EL. I hope to be done in the spring of this year! This is my 8th year at Summerwind STEM Academy and it is truly my second home. I have previously taught 2nd grade and this is my 2nd year as the EL teacher. 

I am very excited to be your child’s teacher and I look forward to learning about you and your families. I ask that you be flexible as I will be constantly reflecting not only on how your child is doing, but also on how I am doing.

My Interests

I am very passionate about being physically active and spending time at the gym. I also love to read in my spare time. I got married over the summer and love spending time with my husband and my cat.
