My name is Mallory Murphey, this will be my 5th year teaching 6th grade at Ascent Academy. I graduated from Utah Valley University in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education, and I’ve been teaching ever since.
I was born and raised in Highland, Utah. I have a big family (4 sisters and 2 brothers). I also have a twin named Mitchell. I have 15 nieces and nephews, and I’m most definitely the favorite aunt! I was raised on a farm. I love working hard and getting dirty. I have fun memories of saddling up my horse and riding him through the fields of Highland after school. Utah is home for me. I love the changes of the seasons and how beautiful Utah is all year round. In the summer of 2018, I adopted a Miniature Pinscher from the Humane Society. His name is Scotch, and he will be turning 6 this July. He loves napping, cuddling, and playing fetch. In my spare time- I enjoy yoga, hiking, kayaking, service, yard work, movies, playing with my dog at the park, people watching, and spending time with my family and friends.
