Mr. Jason Kiester
I can't tell you how excited I am to be teaching here at Star Middle School.
I was lucky enough to be born and raised here in Idaho. I've lived in many different towns throughout Idaho (Glenns Ferry, Marsing, Caldwell, Nampa, Star, Kuna, Mountain Home, Shelley, and Idaho Falls), so I have seen just how wonderful of a state it is. I met my beautiful wife in Shelley, and we have been married now for nearly 12 years. We have three amazing kids, and we moved to Star in 2018. We have absolutely loved it here.
I am currently in my 12th year of teaching and am so excited to be starting up the Spanish program here at the middle school. I love teaching 7th grade exploratory Spanish, as well as 8th grade Spanish 1. My goal is to help prepare my students for the next level and show them the value and benefits of learning a second language. I am also teaching one course of 6th grade PE. It has been wonderful having 6th, 7th, and 8th graders each day.
Apart from teaching, I have always loved sports. I am the 7th grade A volleyball coach, the 8th grade A girls basketball coach, and the 8th grade A boys basketball coach. This is my 8th year coaching volleyball and my 16th year coaching basketball.
I'm excited to be in this wonderful community and be part of one of the best middle schools in the state.
