Charisse Coles

Kindergarten Teacher

Charisse grew up in Boise and graduated from Boise State.  Prior to teaching, she worked at The Treasure Valley Family YMCA (West Y-City Branch) for 15 years as the Aquatic Director and then the Membership Director.  Her first Bachelor’s Degree is in Health Promotion from Boise State. After a 10-year break, she returned to Boise State to earn a second Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.   From the time she started elementary school, her dream was to become a teacher. Spending each day guiding her students to discover the leader inside themselves is exciting. Her passion is in encouraging and challenging each of her students individually in all academic, motor, social and emotional areas during this important year in their lives.  She loves teaching kindergartners the 7 Habits of Happy Kids. Each student in her classroom is a leader, in their own unique and special way.


Miss Cole’s Class Mission Statement:  We are in charge of ourselves. We are respectful of others. We give our best effort. We are kindergarten leaders.
