Third Grade

I am excited to continue my teaching career with Ascent Academy! I am from West Jordan, Utah
and have enjoyed being a Utah resident throughout my life. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from
BYU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a minor in TESOL K-12 (Teaching
English to Students of Other Languages). I also finished my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and
Instruction through Western Governor’s University. I have enjoyed teaching third-grade at
Ascent and look forward to another great year!

I am the oldest of four and love spending time with my family. I also enjoy any and all things
music—I took piano lessons for 12 years and violin lessons for 8. I taught violin lessons during
high school and enjoyed playing violin in BYU orchestras while I was a student. I also enjoy
running, reading, waterskiing, and baking.

I have always wanted to be a teacher and am excited to continue this journey with you and your
