Ms. Gillette


I am an enthusiastic and nurturing educator. Previous to earning my certification, I have many years of invaluable experience in education as a paraprofessional for all grades elementary through secondary. 

I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design & Merchandising from Western Washington University, Bellingham Washington. I earned my endorsement from Idaho State University as a Standard Exceptional Child Generalist K-12 Educator. I have worked 13 years as a Special Education Paraprofessional, 20 years as a sole-proprietor interior designer, 10 years coaching youth soccer, ski instructor in Washington state, and volunteering for many local organizations while my husband and I raised our children.

My family includes my husband and two grown children. My daughter and son are graduates from the University of Idaho, Moscow.
