Meet the Teacher's

Ms. Eash
    My name is Jessica Eash. I grew up in Pennsylvania but moved to Nevada in 2003. While in Nevada I spent 1 year teaching kindergarten and 2 years teaching first grade in the Clark County School District. I hated living in the desert and missed real grass and trees so we decided to move to Idaho.

    I graduated in 2010 with my Bachelor's degree in elementary education from the University of Nevada. From there I went on to get my Master's degree in reading education in 2012 from the University of Missouri and my Educational Specialist degree in literacy education from Walden University in 2015. I have experience working with students at all age levels, ability levels, and personality styles. 

    In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my two step-daughters (Amy and Amanda) and my three fur babies (Duke, Daisy, and Pixie). We enjoy taking the dogs to the lake and exploring Idaho. I am very excited to teach at IACS and get to know all of the wonderful teachers and families that are part of the school community.

Feel free to contact me anytime!




Ms. Wade

    Hello, “I’m Cyndi Jo Wade,” a fourth generation Idahoan, raised in the mist of the mint fields of Nampa, Idaho. A kid at heart, who loves to play, sing, dance, and collect PEZ. Perhaps, that is why I have taught the younger grades for 18 years. I consider teaching the best job in the world! Where else is everyday a new adventure, full of creativity, and fun?

  

    I received my Bachelors of Science in Education from the University of Idaho in 1997 and my Masters of Education, with an emphasis in the Arts in 2002 from Lesley University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I’ve taught grades Kindergarten through sixth with a passion for reading, and a strong dedication to whole-child development through the arts. During my years of teaching, I have applied for numerous grants, designed many Nampa District educational resources, and have been a contracted reading consultant.


    My art background consists of dancing for fifteen years, by participating in ballet and dance teams.  I also have applied myself as an independent artist entering and winning many art contests in the Boise, Idaho area.  As child I was forced to play the piano for five years and the saxophone for two years. Lastly, my most developed talent, singing in the car.

When I’m not at school…


    I’m a mother of two wonderful children a daughter, 18 years and a son, 16 years. You could say I live a full and wonderful life.  Doing the two most fulfilling jobs in the world…being a mother and a teacher.
