Hi! My name is Kristen McDonald. This is my fourth year teaching at Ascent Academy. I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Western Governors University and I'm currently attending grad school to obtain my master's degree. I truly love teaching 5th grade and I strive to provide a safe learning environment for all my students. On a personal note, I'm married to a wonderful man and we have two beautiful children. We also have a very spoiled dog who we call Rico. My hobbies include paddle boarding, boating, and anything on the water. I also enjoy graphic design, crafting, and any time spent with my family. I am a huge Jazz fan and I still believe they will win a championship one day.
My awesome husband Kenny and I have two beautiful children, Ethan and Abbie who are 11 and 12 years old. We also have a very spoiled pup named Dixie. Some of my hobbies include traveling, camping, boating, writing, reading, and any activities done with my family. I'm also a Utah Jazz super fan and attend as many games as humanly possible.
I am so excited to be a part of the AAU family.
