The first quarter of the school year has come to an end and it has been a great experience for me being the principal at Bacchus Elementary. I have learned much as well as enjoyed the experience.
I have come to Bacchus after 22 years of teaching in Granite School District. I began my career at Hunter Elementary and moved to Taylorsville, Elk Run, and Lincoln Elementary schools. My experience has been teaching 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades. Last year I was an assistant principal at Gourley and Morningside Elementary schools. My spare time is spent with family, crafting, and enjoying sports.
This time of year causes me to reflect on the things for which I am thankful. I want to share just a few of them with you. I am thankful for students who come to school every day ready to learn – they give me a daily reminder of what is important and why I became an educator. I am thankful for dedicated teachers and staff who go above and beyond to make sure that great things happen at Bacchus. They do make a difference, and each child, in their own way, benefits from their efforts. I’m thankful for a staff that cares about each other as well as their students. This school has teachers, aides, secretaries, support staff, and administration who really care about students and have their best interests at heart.
I am thankful for volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to the students at school. Perhaps most importantly, I am thankful for parents who trust us with their children and support us in our efforts to create a strong, active partnership with them in providing their child with the best education. Being an involved and supportive parent demonstrates to your child that you value their education and they work they do at school each day. Together we can develop greater self-confidence in each child and help them on the road to being positive contributors to our community.
Together, we make our community an ever-better place to live and work, and a continuing reason to be thankful.
