I have been working at Excelsior Academy since 2013 and have enjoyed it more and more every year. I taught 3rd grade for five years and 4th grade for two. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Dixie State College in 2011, then served an 18-month mission in Oregon. I graduated from The University of Utah with my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and Policy and my Administrator's License in May 2021. I am a 13th generation Grantsville girl and am married to my high school sweetheart, a 9th generation Grantsville boy. We are a classic small-town love story: We live next to my parents. We have a puppy named Lupo, who is our best friend and we also have a little boy, who is the apple of our eye. Some of my hobbies include gardening, playing musical instruments, staying busy, and teaching. My favorite thing about my job is watching children grow. I believe every child has individual talents and can be successful when they discover the ways they learn best. I am so lucky to watch, and take part in, that transformation every year. This year is set to be the best year yet!
