Mrs. Kapala

I grew up in the Wood River Valley and graduated from Wood River High School. I received a Bachelor of Science at the University of Idaho and then earned my cosmetologist license and worked as a beautician in Ketchum at Ikaunieks Hair Salon for ten years. I always wanted to teach, so while working in the hair salon, I returned to school and earned my teaching certificate from Boise State University. I began teaching at Wood River Middle School in 2001 and taught 6th grade math, science and health. I moved to the 7th grade in 2010 and am currently teaching 7th grade and 8th grade math. When I was in school math was always my favorite subject. I love math because to me solving problems are like solving puzzles. I hope to inspire my students to find the joy and beauty of mathematics. I live in Hailey with my husband Rick Kapala who is the program director of Cross Country Skiing for SVSEF. I enjoy the outdoors and you will find me hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and fly-fishing. I also love creating and learning new things. My most recent project was learning how to make handmade soap.
