Mrs. Krista Arterbury
Every year I get a new class family in my room. Each one is uniquely their own little person and getting to know them is its own reward. I love teaching kindergarten because I get to see all those big moments. The moment they learn their alphabet, the first time they look at me and say, “I can read that!”, the first time they make a best friend. Kindergarten is all about learning to love school and learning the building blocks of life and I love being the one that gets to be there for them.
I was born and raised in South Texas, about four hours south of San Antonio in a small town where the orange groves are plentiful, and the beach is only a short drive away. After graduation from the University of Texas- Rio Grande Valley I started teaching at my old elementary school in McAllen, Texas. In 2014 we moved to Idaho, and I started teaching at Summerwind in 2015. I am currently working on my masters in Curriculum instruction and hope to be finished in the spring of next year.
My husband Jason and I met at a coffee shop I was working at during college. We got married the same year I started teaching, and one year later we moved to Boise to be closer to his family. We have three girls together, Kaitlynn, Madison and Spencer Rose.
Being from Texas, I’m not much of a winter person. But I love autumn and summer, especially here in the Treasure Valley! I love to cook and bake, have Marvel movie marathons, sing in the car and go on adventures with my family. We love going to concerts, BSU games and midnight movie showings. You can usually find us in line for coffee (we’re not picky), having sushi at Yoi Tomo downtown, or at the playground with our youngest.
The monthly tuition covers school supplies like pencils, glue, scissors, crayons, etc. You will need a backpack that suits your child. I recommend ones without their name on the outside for safety reasons.
