Hello! My name is Mackenzie Lester and I am so excited to be on the first grade team this year at Ascent Academy! This is my first year teaching first grade, and I couldn’t be more excited to meet my students. I want to teach my students to love learning, develop a growth mindset, and develop their talents. I hope to show my students the value of becoming a life long learner.
I was born and raised in Bountiful, Utah, I am the second of four children and the only girl! I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2014. I married my husband Brady in 2016. In my free time I love to enjoy the beauty that Utah has to offer. I love to hike, and to spend time in the mountains. I love to travel, play tennis, and to read. I look forward to getting to know you and your children!
