Meet Our Teachers

Mackenzie Lester

First Grade

Hello! My name is Mackenzie Lester and I am so excited to be on the first-grade team at Ascent Academy! This is my fifth 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 lifelong 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, and we had our first child in 2021! In my free time I love to enjoy the beauty that Utah has to offer. I love to travel, play tennis, and I am an avid Utah Jazz fan #takenote. I look forward to getting to know you and your children!
