Alissa McGonigal - Director

I am so excited and grateful to be leading the Home School Academy this year! I was born and raised in Idaho, received a Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Montana (Go Grizzlies!), and my Masters in Education from Loyola University Maryland. I also have my Montessori Elementary Certification. I have taught at public schools (multiple grades) and private Montessori Schools (multi-age). I love Idaho and am so glad to be moving home to be near my family! I have a true passion for working with children of all ages. Helping each child progress in all areas of their development is a challenge that I am honored to accept daily.

I have been married for 26 years and have three fantastic grown children. I love to visit them wherever they are in the world. I enjoy traveling, knitting, reading, hiking, camping, river rafting, projects, fiber art, baking, the beach, lakes and mountains. I look forward to getting to know this amazing community of learners!
