Over the many years that I have worked in the education field, I have served students from three to 22 years of age as a special educator, general educator, instructional coach, and administrator. I have education degrees from Southern Utah University and the University of Utah. My most unique education job was as a teacher-naturalist. I loved working with students and other community members as they came to recognize the characteristics of Tennessee’s unique habitats. I was raised in Highland, Utah, and am proud to be an American Fork Caveman. I raised my four children in Tennessee, and my dog is from Sewanee, Tennessee. Now my four children and their children live in Nevada, Utah, and Georgia. My husband and I enjoy traveling to see them, but I would love it if they all lived in Utah. Serving the Ascent Academy Lehi community has brought so much joy and positive energy to my life. I feel like my family has grown exponentially since I began working here as the assistant principal. When I first began teaching special education in 1992, I did not imagine myself knowing so many fun students and watching them grow year to year. Working at AAUL is a blessing! Since I’ve been here, the borders of my heart have stretched in marvelous ways. I’m grateful for my mentors who suggested I study school leadership, and to Mrs. Remington for giving me the opportunity to be a Husky.
