1st Grade-Ms. Francesca


This is my 2nd year teaching at Canyonside Christian School and I am thrilled to be teaching 1st grade this year. I have my A.A. in Special Education for the College of Southern Idaho and I am currently finishing my B.A. with a double major of Indisciplinary Studies (K-8) and Special Education (K-12) at Western Governors University.

I am so appreciative of every person’s uniqueness and I firmly believe that everyone is gifted in their own way. This belief definitely fuels me as an educator. I love experimenting with the kids and finding methods of learning that work for them. Being an excellent educator is so important to me and I’m constantly learning and trying to improve my methods of teaching. The Lord guides and helps me through every day, and I know I wouldn’t be anywhere without him; so my ultimate goal is to help the kids nourish their relationship with God and grow in knowledge.

I’ve been married to my wonderful husband Preston for 7 years and we have two beautiful children together, who both attend CCS; our son Berkley is in 2nd grade and our daughter Hampton Bee is in K-4. My husband and I are also youth group leaders at our church, The Twin Falls Reformed Church, where I’ve also been coaching a basketball camp for the past 6 years.
