I am so excited to be a new teacher at Wasatch Peak Academy! Throughout my entire life I have wanted to work with children and that inspired me to move from Arizona to Utah to pursue an Education degree. I recently graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in History. I completed my student teaching at North Star Elementary in the Salt Lake District. Before that I was a special education aide at Edith Bowen Laboratory School and a Preschool teacher in Logan, Utah. I can’t wait to meet my new students and their families! I hope to create a classroom environment that helps students to feel safe, loved and to help them find a joy for learning. In my free time I like to bake, sing and explore Utah. My husband and I live in downtown Salt Lake City and enjoy hanging out with our two kittens. I am so excited to be joining such a great team at W.P.A and I look forward to getting to share my passion of teaching with the next generation of students!
