Meet the Teacher



WELCOME 1st and 2nd Grade Y'ALL!!!

My name is Jenna Colson and this is my first year teaching at IACS.  I am very excited to start this new adventure in the arts with you and your children.  I was raised in the Pacific Northwest in the Seattle area where my love for teaching children began.  I earned my degree in Elementary Education from BYU-Idaho and began my career teaching 1st grade for 3 years in Pocatello, ID.  My sweetheart decided that we needed a change and moved us to Houston, TX where I taught 2nd grade for 5 years in the Katy School District.  
I have been on a little hiatus these past 4 years being a stay at home momma and raising my two little Texans, Caleb, 8 and Lily Belle, 4.  After living through a few hurricanes, tropical storms, floods and a lot of y'alls and fixins, we decided again, that it was time to come back to Idahome.  My hubby accepted a position as an Inorganic Chemistry Professor at Boise State University, we packed a Penske truck and left the great state of Texas.  
When I am not teaching or being a momma, I love spending my free time visiting my family (now that we are closer), running, READING! READING! READING!, and I LOVE TO SHOP!!
Thank you for sharing your children with me this year.  I am looking forward to a FANTASTIC school year!
