I always wanted to be a teacher since I was in the second grade! I have been teaching at Hayden Peak Elementary for ten years. Before that I taught three years right out of college and then stayed home for 16 years to raise five children. I love spending time with my family, going on vacations and playing games together. I enjoy playing the piano, reading books and walking in the rain. I am an avid journal writer because I don’t want to forget anything. I always try to be positive and happy!

Hayden Peak has been my “home” for 19 years and I still love working and serving here! Before coming to Hayden Peak, I taught first grade for ten years at Oquirrh Elementary and Monte Vista Elementary. While here at Hayden Peak, I taught second grade for another twelve years, back to first grade for a couple of years and now I am teaching third grade! If you add it all up, it comes to 29 years in education!

I love to read, and spend time with my family! We like to take road trips to see different places. We enjoy making treats and settling down in the family room to watch one of our many favorite moviesI have a lot of fun decorating my house for every holiday with items I have sewn, painted, or simply couldn’t resist from the store! I have two playful dogs that I spoil and adore!

I have taught 1st & 2nd grade for almost 20 years. I have my Masters from SUU and ELL endorsement. I love to make learning fun and helping children learn and succeed. I lived in Texas on Galveston Island prior to coming to Utah. I miss the beach and go any chance I get.  I also love to be outdoors and go Island Park direction as much as possible.

This is my 10th year teaching elementary school. I have taught kindergarten and 2nd grade. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy reading, walking, traveling, zumba, playing games and spending time with family and friends. I love teaching and am grateful to be a part of the Hayden Peak team!

Hi! My name is Kelanee Worthington. I am so excited to teach 3rd Grade at Hayden Peak Elementary School! I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. I started my teaching career as a 4th Grade Intern in the Canyons School District. My favorite part of teaching is making connections and forming lasting relationships with each of my students! When I am not at school I enjoy going to the gym, being with my friends and family, and traveling. I’ve been to South Africa, Haiti, and the Dominic Republic. I love Almond Joys, energy drinks, and sushi.
