“Once upon a time, there was a little blonde, curly-headed girl who sat at her little brown roll top desk for hours, “correcting” work that she made for her students (poor sisters and brother). This little girl always dreamed of growing up and being a teacher. She grew up, got married, and became the proud mother of four children before finally achieving her dream of being a teacher.”
This little girl is me, Lani Jo Vigil. I grew up in Sandy, Utah where I was the Jordan High mascot my senior year. I was raising four children while earning my BA in Elementary Education from Westminster College and went on to earn a MA in Curriculum and Assessment from University of Phoenix. I have endorsements in history and ESL (English as a second language), but my Love is MUSIC!! My family is MOST important to me, especially my grandchildren… Samantha Jo is my 1st and she’s a teenager living in Salt Lake City, Jack, Abram, & their sister Annie live in South Jordan , and Tory James (TJ), Olyvia, Allyson & Myles who live in Sacramento, are my GREATEST REWARDS! Not to forget all my three Grandpuppies.. This will be my 32nd year teaching, 20 of which were 6th grade, 4 years of 5th grade, 2 years of 2nd grade, and this will be my 6th time teaching 4th grade! I really appreciate this school and the community for making me feel welcome here…the resources, faculty, parent support and participation have been AWESOME! I look forward to another wonderful year with your 4th grader!
