Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Brenda Mattson. I have been teaching for the past twelve years. This year I will be the Instructional Coach at Silver Sage Elementary and Willow Creek Elementary this school year. I am excited to get to work with the staff and students at both schools this year. As the Instructional Coach I get the opportunity to work closely with teachers and students to make an impact on student achievement. I recieved my Masters Degree in the Arts a few years back. I taught first grade in Weiser, Idaho for 10 years and I absolutely loved it! I met my husband Josh four years ago and after getting married, we found our way to Boise, Idaho. When I'm not teaching, I spend as much time as possible with my family. I have two stepdaughters, Annabelle and Abbi and I have three nieces, Addison, Jaiden and Breann who all keep us very busy and on the go :) My sister Valarie and her husband Noel along with my parents, Ken and Vicki live in Weiser so we seem to be driving back and forth most weekends to watch a sporting event, shooting bows or to go kayaking! We love to be outdoors.
