Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! :) My name is Alyssa Finley (formerly Tracadas), and I look forward to being your child's teacher this year! I just recently graduated from Boise State University in May 2017 with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Literacy. Go Broncos! This is my first year teaching fourth grade at Prospect Elementary. Although this is my first year teaching at Prospect, I am quite familiar with this school because I completed my student teaching at Prospect last year in second grade and in fifth grade. I fell in love with this school's atmosphere, the staff, and most of all, the students. I am extremely excited to be back this year! I believe in creating a classroom environment that promotes positivity, respect, responsibilty, safety, challenge, and engagement. I also believe in welcoming all learners into a safe and collaborative atmosphere. I look forward to getting to know your child and working with you to ensure a successful year for your child.
A few things about me...
I just very recently got married this November. My husband and I like to take advantage of any time we can spend together by hiking, fishing, and binge-watching our favorite Netflix shows. Family is very important to me, so I like to spend as much time with my parents, my sister, and my two adorable nephews as I can! Before accepting a teaching position, I worked at St. Luke's hospital as a C.N.A for four years so I tend to have a wide variety of experiences.
