Hello my name is Lauren Manzano! I am so grateful to be a member of the Ascent Academy community! I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho where I pursued my bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood/Special Education. I am originally from San Diego, California. Although I love the sun and beach, I just couldn’t escape the wonderful nature and seasonal changes that Utah has to offer!
Besides my love for working with children, I love cooking and trying different ethnic foods. I also enjoy participating in outdoor activities that involve hiking, camping, and swimming. I also love traveling, singing, and spending time with family. I am very excited to have the opportunity to help the students at Ascent Academy grow and reach their full potential. I know it will be a wonderful year of growth and learning opportunity for everyone!
