Welcome New Capital Staffulty

Heather Deaver - Special Education Assistant

I recently moved to Idaho earlier this year when my husband was stationed here with the Air Force. I love spending time with my 3 year old daughter and our puppy Lily. I earned a bachelors in psychology from the University of South Carolina in 2013. I have a passion for working with children and families. I am excited to start this new journey at Capital High. I look forward to meeting everyone in the fall!

Katie Dechambeau - Math Teacher

I have lived in Boise almost my whole life and I graduated high school from Capital in 2008. I graduated from Boise State with my Bachelors in 2013, and I’m finishing my Masters this summer. My husband and I have two four legged children that take up most of our free time. Fun fact, both of our dogs have come from students who were unable to keep them. :) During the summers I work for the BLM and in the winter I try to snowboard as much as I can. When we arnt snowboarding or hanging with our pups, my husband and I spend a lot of time with our family. We love a good game night. :)

Leanne Thurston - US History

Hello, I'm Leanne. I'm originally from Philly, and spent the first 18 years of my life in the same house, so I spent the next 10 years moving around! I've lived all over Connecticut, Upstate New York, Boise, and Idaho Falls, and now I'm excited to move back to Boise to settle down. I went to school at UCONN (Go Huskies!) for undergraduate and my first MA, and was a white water raft guide during the summer in upstate New York. I moved to Idaho after I graduated so I could be closer to my sister, big mountains, and even bigger whitewater. While I was here, I fell in love with Boise. I've been teaching history for three years, and before that I worked for BSU TRiO Upward Bound and had the opportunity to teach psychology in the summer. Currently, I'm finishing my thesis for my MA in History, so I have no spare time. But when I do, I love to be outside. I hike, mountain bike, ski, backpack, Kayak, and raft, and am always stoked to try new things. I play the fiddle in a bluegrass band, and am learning the mandolin as well. I have two rescued dogs, Hudson and Moab, that go with me everywhere.

Katie Bosch-Wilson - Math Teacher

Greetings! My name is Katie Bösch-Wilson and I have the pleasure of being able to become part of the Capital family next year as a math teacher. I have eight years of education experience. I taught high school math at Melba High School for five years before I became the secondary math coordinator for the Nampa School District. The past three years as the secondary math coordinator has given me an opportunity to learn so much, but I miss students. So, it is time for me to come back to the classroom. I am so excited to get back to working with students each and every day. I also teach computer science as an adjunct professor for Boise State University during the summer and at night during the school year.

When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my little family which consists of my husband and two dogs. My husband and I are die hard Anaheim Angels fans, so you will find us watching a lot of baseball throughout the summer. I have a pug named Winston and a boxer name Charlie. I am one of those dog parents who spoil their puppies more than they need. I also have four nieces who take up much of my time on the weekends and summer. They are just so much fun to spend time with.

I was born and raised in Idaho. I grew up in Kuna, Idaho and graduated from Boise State with my bachelor’s and master’s degrees. I am in love with the city of Boise! One of my favorite activities is getting up in the foothills to explore. I enjoy attending different events the city puts on. This is an amazing city and I am so happy I get to call it home.

Lindsay Niederklein - English as a New Language

I was raised in Boise and graduated from Capital High School in 2000. I earned my undergraduate degree at Washington State University in English/Secondary Education, and started my career teaching middle school English for 2 years in Las Vegas. I moved back to Boise in 2007 and have been teaching 8th grade English and ELL at Eagle Middle School for the past 11 years. I earned my Masters in Teaching ELL in 2010 from Boise State. I love to run, mountain bike, ski, and read. I have an adventurous husband, 2 spunky daughters, and a lazy golden retriever. I am excited to be back at Capital as a teacher and to be a part of this amazing community!

Sally Mitchell - English Teacher

I've been a language arts teacher for the past 18 years, and as a CHS alumna (class of '93), I'm especially happy to call Capital my new work home. I love working with kids and promoting the language arts, and I am fueled by a strong sense of adventure (Leslie Knope is my spirit animal). I have 2 sons who attend school in Boise and a husband who works in a medical lab. We love going to movies and the theatre, hiking in the foothills, and traveling to the coast. I look forward to working with the awesome staff and students of CHS!

Chloe Foster - Special Education Resource Room Teacher

My name is Chloe Foster and this will be my first year as a special education teacher! The past 3 years, I have been a paraprofessiomal at Boise High School. I have always loved helping people learn and figure out how they can be successful. I am a graduate of Idaho State University where I received my Bachelors degree in Speech Language Pathology. I also received a golf scholarship to play on their womens team for four years! I am currently at Boise State University finishing up my Masters degree in Special Education. In my spare time, I love to hike, ride my bike, and be creative. I have a true passion for helping others and can't wait to be part of the Capital High School staff.

Morgan McGee - American Government/Western Civilization

My name is Morgan McGee

I'm from Nampa, Idaho and graduated from Skyview High School in 2014.

I attended Idaho State my freshman year on a dance team scholarship. I then transferred to the University of Idaho (GO VANDALS!). I was a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority, a member of the Idaho Spirit Squad (dance team), and coached competitive gymnastics. I recently finished my student teaching at Capital High School under Dane Pence and Cindy Wilson and I graduated this May with a B.S. in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Social Studies.

My hobbies/interests include: dancing, gymnastics, skiing, hiking, traveling, and reading.

I am so grateful and excited to officially be apart of Eagle PRIDE by working with the students, staffulty, and by contributing to the amazing school that is Capital High School.

Skye Hetherington - Health Occupations & Assistant Athletic Trainer

I received my Bachelors of Science in Athletic Training from Boise State University and recently obtained my Masters of Science in Applied Exercise Science from Concordia University. Before working at Capital I was a graduate student with a non-profit in the St. Louis, Missouri area where we helped low-income high schools obtain athletic trainers. I will be working as the assistant athletic trainer and health professions educator and cannot wait for the school year. Go Eagle Pride!
