Mrs. Shawna Vaage

Hello! Welcome to 1st grade!! I'm Mrs. Vaage (Vō-gē) It rhymes with bogey, like in golf 😊

I am SO excited to get to know you and your student this year! 1st grade is a big year, growing leaps and bounds in all academic areas. 

Here is a little bit about me: I grew up attending school (K-12) in the West Ada School District. I absolutely love the Boise/Meridian area. I graduated from Boise State University in 2018 with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education with an endoresment in Literacy. One of my favorite parts of teaching is getting kids excited about reading. I taught 2nd grade the last three years in the district, and I'm looking forward to this change to 1st grade. I've been married to my husband for three years. We enjoy spending time outside walking the Greenbelt and hiking in the area.

I believe each child is special and unique. All children can learn and succeed. I will do my best to encourage your child each and every day. We are going to have a fun year!
