Speech Language Pathologist
Work Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgINTERNET
I have been a Speech Language Pathologist for 18 years. I did my undergraduate degree in psychology and then after working at the Children’s Center for a number of years found my true calling in speech pathology. I got my Master’s degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Utah. This will be my 14th year here at Truman. When I am not working I am generally spending time with my family. I have 3 amazing children, ages 10, 18, and 24. We love to travel and camp in our trailer. I am an avid reader and love to escape into a great book. I love working with children and can’t imagine doing anything else. Every day students make me smile with their energy and enthusiasm.
I first joined Granite District as a Playworks Coach in 2014, where I had the opportunity to teach students social skills through play at recess. I found so much joy working in the elementary schools, that I decided to pursue a Masters in Social Work through the University of Utah to return to Granite District as a School Social Worker. I absolutely love working with students to help support their emotional growth and resiliency! I believe every kid has the ability to overcome challenges, resolve conflicts, and learn skills to help them succeed in school. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my partner and our three cats, go hiking, listen to music, and make art!

I love kids! I have been a school psychologist for Granite School District for over 15 years working with children with various neurological and cognitive disorders, as well as emotional and behavioral issues. I enjoy working with teachers, parents, and administrators to resolve problems, big and small. It is very rewarding to watch children change and grow and to be an integral part of that process.
When I’m not spending my time with the students here at Granite School District, you can find me hiking, reading books, or playing the X-box with my own three kiddos or snuggled in the papasan with the latest copy of the New Yorker.

I am so excited to join Truman as a Literacy Coach this year! I started teaching in Special Education (K-3) and have taught first and second grades. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are from the University of Utah, but I also have endorsements from Weber State and soon from UVU. Reading is so important and I hope to share my excitement for reading with students and staff!

I have taught at Truman for several years in the classroom, but now I am the technology specialist! I am excited to learn more about technology and share this information with teachers and students. When I am not working, I enjoy archery and reading.
BTS Visual Arts Specialist
I was born and raised in the Upstate of South Carolina, where I developed a love of art during my time in elementary school. When I began attending college, I chose to make education my career, and I made the decision to teach a subject that I loved - one that I could get excited about teaching every day. Visual arts was the obvious choice. I graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art Education K-12 from the University of South Carolina at the end of 2016, and moved to Utah the same week. I've been teaching with the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program in Granite School District for the past two years. I am very excited to start creating and learning with the students at Truman Elementary School this year. Outside of school you can find me spending time with my lovely wife and two adorable dogs, working on my own creative projects, or out hiking and backpacking in the beautiful Utah wilderness.
