Mrs. Shalynn Carpenter
My name is Shalynn Carpenter and I work at Purple Sage Elementary. I have been teaching since 2006 and I enjoy every minute of it. I taught Special Education for 5 years before moving to 2nd grade. I am now on my next teaching adventure currently teaching 3rd grade. I hold a BS in Elementary Education with endorsements in Special Education Generalist and Special Education Severe and Profound. I also hold a MS in Teaching and Learning with an emphasis in Technology Integration. For my BS I attended Boise State. GO BRONCOS! I recieved my MS online through NOVA Southwestern Univeristy. The teaching philosophy that I hold is that kids should have fun learning, if they are having fun when they learn they will remember the information longer. So if your child comes home and says that all we did was play games, that may be true.
My husband and I have two wonderful kids. Not only do I work in Middleton, but I live here and my kids attend school at the High School. My husband and I are both MHS graduates. During the winter, besides working, my family and I enjoy ice fishing, snowmobiling, and hunting. During the summer, besides getting ready for the next school year, I take a small break and enjoy camping, fishing, and exploring with my family. During any time of the year I love to curl up with a good book or enjoy a movie with my family.
