My name is Tiana Argyle Prestwich and I will be teaching 8th grade health this year. I grew up in Santaquin, Utah and am the the second oldest of five children. My husband and I both graduated from Payson High School. I enjoyed my schooling experience and believe that it helped me become the person I am today and want to be able to be a part of that experience with others.

I’m so excited to be teaching the best class ever next year! I’m an orchestra nerd through and through, and love playing all kinds of music on my main instrument (viola). When I’m not performing or teaching, I’m probably baking or rock climbing. I love baking anything delicious. If there isn’t something freshly baked in my house, I know what I need to do. In an attempt to be more active, I started (indoor) rock climbing this year- and now I’m hooked! It makes me feel much more adventurous than I really am. I can’t wait to teach orchestra full time!
