• Borah Lions Art Adventures 

    Borah Community, we have another Art Inspiring year planned for our Borah students. My name is Maria Portue. This will be my third year serving at Borah Elementary as the Art Specialist. It is my desire that every student enjoys creating original artwork and exploring a wide variety of mediums.  Our students will have the unique opportunity to learn basics of working with clay throughout the grades.

    I am a graduate of Bethany University in Santa Cruz, California. I have recently completed the Gifted Education Specialty Endorsement through Whitworth University.  My family has lived in Coeur d'Alene for over fifteen years. My husband, Steve and I, are excited to see our daughters both graduate from college in 2020.  This summer we celebrated our 25th anniversary in Seattle.
