Dear Students and Parents,
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year at Hayden Peak Elementary! Everyone here is eager to begin a great new school year. I am honored to join the Hayden Peak family once again. As some of you may know I was an Assistant Principal here for two years and I have many fond memories of my time here. As the Principal of Hayden Peak I intend to work hard to help all students learn and grow and support teachers and staff as we strive to ensure the success of all of our students. I am grateful for the opportunity to work collaboratively with teachers on a daily basis, while also remaining connected to our students learning and growing in the classroom. I firmly believe that every child can excel and that the partnership between home and school is critical to their success.
I come to you with 26 years of educational background in Jordan School District. I received my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Wyoming. After graduating I moved to Utah where I taught 6th grade and 6th grade ALPS for 14 years at Jordan Ridge Elementary in South Jordan, Utah. I received my Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Brigham Young University and then became an Assistant Principal for two years at both Hayden Peak and Welby Elementary. I then served as the Gifted and Talented Consultant for Jordan School District. After two years at the District Office I was appointed Principal at Welby Elementary and spent the last seven years there. It is wonderful to be coming back to serve as Principal at Hayden Peak Elementary for the coming years. I have worked with Mr. Butler in the transition back to Hayden Peak and look forward to continuing the amazing work that has been going on here for many years.
On a personal note I come from a large family whom I love to spend time with. I am a “favorite aunt” to 16 nieces and nephews whom I adore. The arts are a large part of my life and I enjoy reading, traveling, baking and entertaining, singing and serving in my community.
To our students, I cannot wait to meet you all! I hope that you are excited for this coming school year and that you have had a great summer. It is going to be a fun year learning together.
In closing, please know that my door is always open to you. I welcome the opportunity to get to know all of you and work together to help your children learn and grow.
Enjoy the remaining days of summer!
