Dear Boyes Bulldog families,

I am pleased to introduce myself to you as the new principal of Ethel Boyes Elementary School. I would like to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been happily married for nineteen years, and my husband and I have four children. Our family knows how to work hard and play hard! We love to go waterskiing, fishing, camping, and play sports. We live here in Idaho Falls and all of our children attend District #91 schools. I look forward to getting to know all of you better in the coming weeks and months!

I was a Special Education teacher in School District #91 for fourteen years, and was the principal of Theresa Bunker Elementary for five years. I believe that schools should be places where students feel welcomed, cared for, respected, and challenged. I believe with all my heart that we are engaged in the most important work – that of developing young people with integrity through forming quality relationships, setting positive examples, and providing a rich educational experience. I am excited to join the Bulldog team, and to engage in this critical work with you!

I know that Ethel Boyes already has an awesome, positive culture, and I am excited to be a part of that. I look forward to building a new team culture as we welcome many new students, families, teachers, and staff this month. Together we will create a new Ethel Boyes family by blending the best elements of the existing school culture with fresh ideas from new staff, students, and parents.


Andrea Williams, Principal
