Ms. Janae Korfanta
After graduating from Boise High School, I ended up earning two degrees from Boise State University, one in Business Economics and one in Secondary Education, Mathematics.
Throughout almost all of my schooling I worked at the Discovery Center of Idaho, which was extremely fun! As I have been involved with the Discovery Center for over 11 years, I have been able to help with almost everything they do there. From volunteering at the front desk to managing their daily operations I definitely got to do a lot (I even still teach some of their summer camps), but my favorite part was always the problem solving (math) I got to do in my job and I decided I wanted to share that passion with others. This is where the teaching came in.
While I have a lot of experience teaching in an informal setting, this will only be my third year in my own classroom. I taught 8th grade math for one year at Lake Hazel Middle school and then I was one of the lucky teachers who got to help open Victory last year, which I absolutely loved!
I am very passionate about what I do and truly am here to help. Please don't hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns at any time throughout the school year.
