Mrs. Sharleen Thurston

Welcome to 2nd grade! My name is Sharleen Thurston and I will be your child’s second grade teacher.  I recently graduated from Boise State University and received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.  This is my second year of teaching and my first year teaching second grade.  Previously I taught thrid grade, so I know where your child is headed.  Prior to graduating I worked as an aide in an elementary school both assisting and teaching lessons. 

Outside of teaching, I love hiking and spending time with my family.  I have been married for 22 years and have four wonderful children, three boys and one girl.  My oldest son and daughter are both attending college in Idaho.  My middle son is a sophomore in high school and my youngest son is in 5th grade this year.  I also have two dogs and a cat. 

I chose to become a teacher because I can't imagine any profession that could be more satisfying on a daily basis.  I love knowing the impact I make on my students academically and in the real world.  In the classroom I strive to insure a positive learning environment by making learning interesting and fun.  I love to laugh with students, and together we work on building a sense of community in the classroom.  I am looking forward to a terrific year.  Thank you for sharing your children with me!
