Ms. Durkin

Welcome first grade families! I am so excited to be your child's teacher this year! 

This is my seventh year teaching, with six of those years being in first grade. It's safe to say that I love first grade and can't wait to share this experience with you and your family.

I grew up in beautiful Hailey, Idaho playing competitive volleyball and softball, and spending every winter weekend snowboarding. I frequently head home on the weekends to spend time with my parents and our two adorable dogs! 

After high school I ventured to Southern California to attend college in Santa Barbara before moving back to Idaho to finish my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Boise State! I have lived in Boise ever since and absolutely love living in the City of Trees. In 2015 I went back to BSU where I graduated with my Master's degree in Education, Curriculum and Instruction. Prior to joining the amazing Mary Mac family, I taught both first grade and kindergarten in the Caldwell School District, and first grade at Sage International School of Boise. My diverse educational experiences have helped shaped me into the passionate educator I am today. 

In my free time I love snowboarding, spending time with friends and family, watching baseball games (go Mariner's!), going to Idaho Steelhead's hockey games, and relaxing at home. 

Looking forward to a great year!
