Denise Sanna-McClure - 4th Grade B


Hello - I am Denise McClure.  I was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho.  I am the oldest of two children. I am happily married to a Pocatello Police officer.  We have six children and three grandchildren. I received my teaching degree in Special Education from Idaho State University.  I am also certified in Intensive Behavior Interventions (Habilitative Intervention), CPR/First Aid and hold a minor in Sociology.  I taught Special Education for 10 years before coming to Connor Academy where I now teach 4th grade.  I absolutely LOVE teaching and have found a special nitch in the 4th grade.  I feel truly blessed to teach with the amazing team at Connor Academy!

In my "spare time", I enjoy activities with my family.  Highland softball, summer Impact softball, riding horses, wood crafts, and my darling Bernese Mountain Dog "Esther".  I am a HUGE Pittsburg Steelers fan and you will see that my classroom is a combination of "fan club", country girl and minions. 

I believe that every child can learn, maybe not on the same day and not in the same way, but they can learn.
