I will advise the Jewelry Making Club. I have been married to my husband for the past 22 years.  We don’t know how to be adults without each other.  We have two sons and two daughters.  We enjoy playing games together and eating peanut butter popcorn with a new movie.

Hi, my name is Mrs. Rollins. I started working at Twin Falls in 2016. I was born and raised in southern Virginia and spent ten years there raising my kids. I love warm temperatures, and until I moved to Idaho, I didn’t even mind the humidity (now I’m spoiled by the dry climate), but I still love sunshine and being outside when it’s warm. My favorite things to do are hiking, paddle boarding, taking long walks, and hitting East coast or Florida beaches every summer. I also love to read WWII fiction and nonfiction when I have time, but hands down, my favorite thing to do is spend quality time with my family. I am the Key Club advisor. My amazing husband Paul and I have six kids. Five boys and one girl ranging in age from 13-21. Each of my children are lovely people. I won’t take the time to prove it with evidence now, but you can trust me. They are. I am the luckiest to call them mine.

Hi, my name is Mr. Withers. I started teaching at TFHA in 2009, but that year was half-time between TFHS and CRHS. After several years at another school, I began teaching full-time at TFHS in 2014. I love to travel and discover new places. I like to lose myself in a good book or stargazing. I enjoy many outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, fishing, gardening, running, biking, and sailing. I appreciate a good joke as I love to laugh. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family. I am the advisor for the Traditional Game Club. My wife and I recently celebrated our 32 anniversary. We have six exceptional children and one adorable grandson (with a granddaughter on the way).
