Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Sally Mitchell
I am thrilled to work with the fine staff and students of Renaissance High School! I embrace the IB philosophy and subscribe wholly to the aim of "develop[ing] internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help to create a better and more peaceful world."
I received my Bachelor of Arts in English in 1996, then spent three years as a legal assistant while completing my teaching certificate at Boise State. Having certified as a graduate, I received my Master of Arts in Education (Curriculum & Instruction) in 2004. I have been happily teaching English for the past eighteen years, first at Eagle Middle School (2000-2005), then at Mountain View High School (2005-2015), and now at Renaissance (2015-present). I love working with students and exploring truths found in literature because, as Emily Dickinson wrote, "the brain is wider than the sky"--there is much to explore and I am always learning.
