Mr. Christian Housel
My name is Christian Housel and this is my third year as the principal of the Idaho Fine Arts Academy and my 26th year as an educator. Before coming to IFAA, I served as the principal or as an administrator in several schools in the West Ada School District. I spent time in some amazing places, including Lowell Scott Middle School, Meridian Technical Charter High School, and Eagle Elementary School of the Arts. I also taught English, Spanish, and various Humanities courses at Meridian and Centennial High School during my teaching career. I hold a Bachelor's of Arts from Northwest Nazarene University in English/Spanish Education, a Master's of Educational Administration from the University of Idaho, and an Educational Specialist Degree in Leadership from the University of Idaho. I love teaching and learning! I have a real passion for all kinds of music and art! I am also a pianist, vocalist, and songwriter who enjoys everything classical, jazz, contemporary and beyond. I love music of all kinds. I am excited about the opportunities IFAA brings to the students of West Ada and am excited about the future of this amazing school. When I am not working with our students and staff, I spend time with my amazing wife Tiana and our two sons Cole and Bret. I also spend as much time possible mountain biking, fishing, and making music.
