Rillene Nielsen joined our faculty at SFJH three years ago.  She is a California native transplanted to Utah after a wildfire.  She is a mother of 6--5 boys and 1 girl.  And according to her children, she can be opinionated and bossy at times.  Here are just a few things we love and appreciate about her.

Meet my family.
