am so excited to be back at Ascent Academy-West Jordan this year! This will be my 2nd year with Ascent and I could not be happier to be returning to this wonderful campus!
Teaching has been a life-long dream of mine, but took me several years to pursue.
Before finishing my degree, I worked in finance for almost 15 years, but could never shake the desire to teach and so, with a teenager and two toddlers at home I decided to go back to school to pursue a teaching degree. I graduated from Western Governors University in 2017 with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I taught in Granite School District for the 2017-2018 school year, and before that substituted in Murray School District.
I love working with children and am constantly amazed at their abilities and thought processes. I truly believe that all children have infinite potential to do amazing things in the world, and I love being a small part of helping them discover their potential.
When I am not at work, I love spending my free time reading any book I can get my hands on, learning new things (I WILL be able to play the guitar some day…At least, I keep telling myself that) or taking drives just to see where I end up and what I can find. I have 3 children who keep me on my toes constantly and make every day an adventure.
