Crystal Thatcher

Hello! My name is Crystal Thatcher, and this is my first year teaching at MES! I have quite the heart for the young learners, so I'm excited to be one of the kindergarten teachers. 

Ever since I was little, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I grew up in Gooding, Idaho and moved to Boise for college. I received my bachelor's degree in teaching from Boise Bible College, and pursued higher education from Johnson University in Knoxville, Tennessee. Tennessee was awesome, but I missed my Broncos...and my fiance! Planning a wedding along with kindergarten lessons calls for a fun and crazy year! So, I'll be running on coffee and pure adrenaline!
