Hi! My name is Candi Stradling and I am excited to join an incredible team at IACS. This will be my first year at IACS, but not my first year as an educator. After attending BYU-Idaho I continued my education at Boise State University where I received my bachelor degree in Elementary Education in 2004. I then began my teaching career in the Vallivue School District where I taught fifth grade for one year and sixth grade for three years. I loved my time in the classroom, but decided to leave the classroom temporarily to be home with my own children during their early years. During my nine years of being home I ran an in-home daycare for nine years as well as a preschool for the last five years. In the Fall of 2016 I began working towards my masters in Curriculum and Instruction at Boise State University.
Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband of 17 years and children. During the summer, we enjoy going camping, swimming, family vacations and spending time with our extended family. During the school year our family spends many hours together at the soccer fields or on the basketball court, where I get to enjoy watching my children do the things they love! We also enjoy a good movie with popcorn and smoothies in hand.
