Mrs. Chrissy Kane
My name is Chrissy Kane and I am the counselor at Meridian Academy. This is my third year at Meridian Academy, and my 9th year as a school counselor. I have spent 7 years in the high school level and the remainder in middle school. Working with high school teenagers is truly my passion!
I was born and raised in West Lafayette, Indiana and attended Purdue University. I received my bachelor's degree in Child Development and Family Studies in 2002. A few years after that, my husband and I decided that it was time for a change and we moved to the Treasure Valley 10 years ago. Shortly after moving to Idaho, I began working on my master's degree at Boise State University and graduated with a master's in Counseling in 2009. Moving to Idaho has been one of the best decisions my husband and I have made. We absolutely love it here!
We have 3 children, who are all boys. My oldest son is 17 and attends Meridian Academy and also takes classes at Meridian High School. I also have an 10 year old son and a 5 year old son. They keep me very busy with all of their activities! I'm constantly running them to hockey, band, cross country, baseball, and basketball.. It's crazy, but I love it! I also enjoy my vintage goods business, decorating my home, playing softball, reading, camping, and Purdue football (I went to college with Drew Brees). We also have a golden retriever a half shih tzu half poodle and a kitten.
I am excited for the 2017-2018 school year and our Mastery Learning program.
