Our Preschool Teachers


Ms. Stacie teaches the 3 to 4 year old children. She is a native of Minnesota. Stacie is an avid lover of the outdoors and enjoys reading and creating projects inspired by Pinterest.  She is a graduate of South Dakota State University, where she earned her BS in Early Childhood Ed. with an emphasis in Special Education.  Stacie has worked as an early childhood teacher in a variety of settings both public and private since 1996.

Stacie was thrilled to join BCP in 2012! She loves the sense of history, community and the “powered by play” philosophy. “I feel so fortunate to work with such a talented and highly committed staff, and with parents who want to be so involved in their child’s preschool experience. I love the curiosity and desire to learn that children display at this age and I am rejuvenated by the giggles and squeals that come from them. My priority is to create a safe, nurturing environment where children can grow, evolve and have fun. I thoroughly enjoy one on one moments with each of the students, as well as sharing magical moments with a group of children. I am grateful to be a part of the BCP community.”

Ms. Tara teaches the 4 to 5 year old children. She graduated from Boise State University with an Associate Degree in Childcare and Development and a Bachelor of Applied Science in Child Development/Early Childhood Education. Throughout her studies, a great amount of emphasis was placed on understanding and working with diverse families. Ms Tara has been with the school for more than a decade, starting in the 3 to 4 year old classroom. She feels that the classroom should be an extension of the child’s home. When making everyday experiences available for children to explore, they will naturally learn and have a love for it. She looks forward to being your child’s teacher and hopes to build a great partnership with the parents of Boise Cooperative Preschool. She believes every child deserves a great beginning and a teacher with passion.
