ANNA LOVELADY - Born and raised in Melba, Idaho, I never veered too far from home; I have been in the teaching profession since graduating from BSU in 1996. I made the move to Kuna High School in 2008 teaching junior and senior language arts. My husband of 23 years, Patrick, and I also make our home in Kuna with our three daughters. Kuna has been the perfect spot to enjoy a small town atmosphere while still being close to one of my favorite sports - shopping. As part of the Kuna School District, both my family and I have been provided with joy, adventure, and fulfillment. I'm looking forward to pursuing the next phase in my career in education as an administrator at the high school.


KYLE AURDAHL - Hello Kuna Kavemen! My name is Kyle Aurdahl. For the past 10 years I have worked in the Vallivue School District where I taught social studies, served in various committees, supervised summer school, coached 3 different sports, and earned my master's degree in educational leadership. I am a native of the Oregon Coast. I graduated with my undergrad from Brigham Young University-Idaho. I am married to my best friend and we have 5 wonderful children. I am very excited to join the Kuna School District and the Kuna community. I look forward to partnering with you as we work to guide our students in the right direction.


LISA DUGAN - I came to Kuna School District four years ago from Moscow, Idaho. I love the small town feel and vision of the district. I have my Masters in Teaching from Washington State University. I have taught Kindergarten at Silver Trail Elementary. I wanted to move into Administration to have a bigger impact on student growth and achievement, and to support teachers in their professional growth. This May, I graduated from the University of Idaho with my Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership. I wanted to stay in the Kuna School district because I like the community of Kuna. Next year, I look forward to working with 8th Grade students and the teachers at Kuna Middle School.


ALEX JENSEN - I recently finished my tenth year in education, six of those years teaching half time High School and halftime Elementary School Physical Education in Kooskia Idaho. The last 4 years of my career have been spent at Kuna High School teaching and coaching Varsity Girls Basketball. The reason I applied and accepted the Dean of Students position at Crimson Point is because I miss being in the elementary setting. Elementary Education is a great place to be, students are excited to be in school and excited to see you. I am so blessed to have such a great opportunity to learn from all of the great teachers and staff at Crimson Point Elementary school.
