Graduation Reminders! | Protest Art Pick Up | Memoir Books
Class of 2018,
Already missing you something fierce! Keep you eye on IG and Facebook for a little tribute post by the end of the week 😊
I have moved your memoir books to the Career Center along with your cards so that when you go to pick-up your diploma you can take care of that as well! Please be sure to go to the Career Center even if your diploma is in the office. Today (Tuesday) is the last day for diploma pick-up.
I will be at school Thursday morning from about 7:30-12 and will have any remaining memoir books, cards and your protest art in the portable. I'll be meeting with other English teachers but the room will be open to you all.
Please e-mail if you need to arrange a different time and I'll do my best to meet you at school when it works! Hope you all are relishing your 'last' summer before adulthood.
Remember, you will NOT receive your transcript or your diploma if you have fines. You can come pay them throughout the summer with the book keeper so you can begin your adult life fine free!

Mrs. Summer Cook
I began my teaching career in 2011 at MVHS but had already been bleeding blue and green (or perhaps crying tears of blue and green) for a year-and-a-half as a student teacher here at Mountain View. I graduated with a degree in English Teaching from Boise State University in 2011 after changing majors from Journalism to Education fairly late in the "game". A life changing interview with Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange) during my internship with BSU's student newspaper, The Arbiter, caused me to reassess the direction of my education and career. In between majors I served a year with AmeriCorps as a reading tutor for at risk students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. I realized teaching was indeed my passion, but elementary school definitely wasn't the right fit.
In 2014, after three years of teaching The Freshman Fury, I took a brief hiatus from teaching to raise our son Emerson. During the year of 2015-2016 I taught on-line and tutored students in the Boise School District's AVID program hoping to subdue my longing to be back in the classroom. Instead, the opposite happened. Last year I was over joyed to be back in the classroom and to have had so many of my same 'kids' I left in 2014, again as seniors. This year is no different, teenagers are rad, but seniors have earned their keep in my heart. I truly love my career, refer to my students as 'my kids', and geek out daily over the incredible content I have the privilege to teach and discuss.
Outside of the classroom, my life revolves around my 3-year-old "wild child" Emerson, my husband Marshall, our three pups, and renovating our 1930s farmhouse. I love to travel, hike, camp, swim, run, Netflix binge, cook and entertain, and occasionally indulge in reality TV and gossip magazines.
