A long-time teacher, I work to restore funding to Idaho schools to reduce class sizes and allow more time for teachers to work one on one with students to assess needs and insure each student is achieving at his or her highest level. I will work to lower fees and increase scholarship programs to keep Idaho's promise to its young people and its business community by making a college education affordable for every high school graduate.
"I teach at Fort Boise Mid High because I love teaching and particularly love working with at risk teens. I am an Idaho certified teacher but work as a writer in the schools for the Log Cabin Literary Center because this job allows me to advocate for the community while continuing to teach in a public school class room. I have turned down assignments at private schools to teach at Fort Boise because I am completely dedicated to public education in Idaho. I feel honored to work with my students and with other teachers at Fort Boise. They inspire and challenge me every day I am in the class room. I love finding my students' incredible talents. I could not have a better job." --Nicole LeFavour April, 2004
