Term Ending: June 2020
I am passionate about education. I grew up in Poway, CA a suburb of San Diego. During my childhood, I grew to love learning from hands on experiences and attending excellent schools. I love the ocean, mountains, reading, singing, running, biking, and serving others. I received a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in music from BYU. I taught 4th grade for 3 years before becoming a stay at home mother. While a teacher I focused on the needs of students at varied academic levels. I became a supporter of leveled learning as it engages the student to learn at their level and still feel challenged. I believe it is important for students to learn critical thinking skills while still having fun.
Over the past six years I have watched four of our five children benefit greatly from the education provided by outstanding teachers and staff at WPA. I have served on many committees. I have lead the Parent Service Learning Committee for 5 years and spent 2 years on the Community Council. I love that we have the opportunity as parents to be involved in our school and help teachers provide our students with better curriculum, resources, and individual opportunities to engage in the learning process.
I am honored to be on the Board and continue to serve this great school in providing an atmosphere where a higher level of learning can take place in core subjects. Students also have incredible opportunities to excel in service, music, physical education, art, technology, and Spanish. It is a school where parent support and involvement greatly benefits the students. Knowledge, respect, service, kindness, and confidence are all hallmarks of Wasatch Peak Academy. I love this school.
