Mrs. Cathy Plummer

Give us a little background about yourself:

I grew up in Massachusetts, went to undergraduate school for music at the University of Massachusetts, and then went to graduate school at the University of New Hampshire. My husband Mitch and I are both from MA. We have been in Idaho since 2001, and both of our girls consider Idaho their home.

What are your hobbies? What do you like to do for fun?

We like to do things outdoors- skiing, hiking, and biking. I also love to read and garden when I have the time.

How did you get started in teaching?

I originally got a degree in music, and then decided I loved playing the flute, but I really wanted to teach in the classroom. So I went back to school and got a masters degree in education.

What is your favorite thing about being a teacher?

I love the creative side of teaching, and coming up with new and innovative ways to try and engage the students.

Why did you choose White Pine?

I chose White Pine because it is a charter school and I love the Core Knowledge Curriculum focus. I used the Core Knowledge curriculum with my own daughters when we homeschooled in elementary school.
