Welcome to Mr. Stastny's classroom.

I have had the opportunity to teach at Kimberly High School since 2011. After earning a Bachelors Degree in Business Education from Idaho State University I worked for my families Ag based business for 16 years before I decided I needed a change.  Fortunately I had the opportunity to come to work in the Kimberly School District and be a part of an amazing group of people who love what they do.  I bring a lot of experience that naturally transfers to Business Education and have really enjoyed the chance to interact with and engage your students in a business classroom.
