My name is Leena McKinney and I’m so excited to start my teaching career here at Ascent Academy!
I was raised in Washington state aka the beautiful PNW, this, in turn, resulted in me enjoying everything outdoors… whether it be hiking, going on walks, enjoying nature, quadding, farming, just sitting outside, etc. Other hobbies include traveling internationally and nationally, going to all sorts of National Parks, and spending time with loved ones.
I recently graduated from BYU with my B.S. in Wildlife and Wetlands Conservation and minor in Environmental Science. I am now working towards my Master of Education degree through UVU and I am so excited to be teaching science to these students this upcoming fall!
