Mrs. Kim Thayer
Hello! I am thrilled to be here at Chaparral teaching 2nd grade. I previously worked in the Kuna School District for 16 years teaching Kindergarten or 1st grade. It didn't take me long to fall in love with this age group. Second graders are wise, funny and quite independent!
I grew up in Independence, OR., a small town in the beautiful Willamette Valley. I'm a graduate of Oregon State (GO BEAVS) and Concordia University, Portland.
My husband Greg and I are the proud parents to our 19 year old son Karsten, who attends BSU.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, coffee, music and attending concerts. As a family we love to travel, eat out and watch movies or binge on various Netflix series.
I believe anything is possible with hard work, consistency and determination. I always tell my students to Dream Big. Together we will reach for the stars to achieve our best. Let's work together to make this year a great one!
