Congratulations to Michal Yadlin, College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Faculty of Distinction for December 2019. Yadlin is an adjunct faculty at the College in the Integrated Studies and Visual and Performing Arts departments teaching CWID (Connecting with Ideas) and Humanities courses.
Yadlin grew up in California and moved to Idaho to attend College of Idaho where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and master’s degree in Teaching. After teaching middle school in California for a few years, she returned to Idaho and began teaching an Effective Studying course at College of Idaho. She went back to school to get a master’s degree in History from Boise State University prior to beginning her career at CWI in 2014.

She is also an Adjunct Faculty Senator and has presented twice at the annual Treasure Valley Adjunct Conference. When not grading, meeting with students, prepping classes, or working on behalf of adjuncts, Yadlin tries to travel as much as possible. When in Boise, she loves reading, hiking in the foothills, and enjoying all the coffee shops the city has to offer.
