• Welcome to 2nd Grade:



    Hi! May name is Chris Cahoon. I am excited to be teaching 2nd grade at NEXA. I've taught for 17 years in the Coeur d'Alene School District in Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. I graduated from Lewis-Clark State College with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from the University of idaho with a Masters of Education in curriculum and instruction. I'm originally from Montana but moved to Coeur d'Alene in 1991. I love the beauty of this area and all the outdoor activities available here. I spend as much time as possible with my kids and five grandkids, but when I'm not with them, you might find me kayaking, running with my two dogs, biking or just relaxing on the beach with a good book.

    Hi! My name is Jodi Vershum and I'm thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade! I have taught 20 years in the Coeur d'Alene School District. I have both a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Idaho. I am originally from Lewiston, Idaho, but have lived in the Coeur d'Alene area for 25 years. I have enjoyed all the things I have taught, but there is a special place in my heart for 2nd grade I have a wonderful husband and three terrific kids. When I'm not teaching, I love to kayak, camp, hike, watch my kids in sports, snowmobile, snowshoe, garden, read and travel.
