Submitted by david.thacker on Mon, 08/09/2021 - 09:48

 I am one of the new 9th grade math teachers and will be teaching Math 1. I am originally from Las Vegas, Nevada and love the heat more than the cold. I am a huge ice hockey fan and love going to hockey games. I know it will be a shock to most people, but my team is the Vegas Golden Knights. I grew up with three brothers and would play street hockey with them in my neighborhood.

My name is Ms. Stevens and I am so excited to teach Math 8 this year! I grew up in American Fork, Utah and studied mathematics education at BYU, where I got both my bachelor's and master's degrees (go cougs!). I love math, traveling, playing piano, and playing Legend of Zelda video games. I am a big fan of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and most things Disney. Most importantly, I firmly believe sriracha mayo is the greatest condiment in the world.

I’m Coach Bleyle and I’ll be teaching PE! I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in physical education teaching and coaching. I love being active, getting in the weight room, and playing sports. My favorite sport would have to be volleyball, but I love pretty much all of them!

Introducing Zak Nowell

My name is Zak Nowell and I will be teaching P.E.

I grew up in a small town in central Utah on a horse ranch. I enjoy all things outdoors, hunting, hiking, fly fishing, camping, and mowing my lawn! Some of my favorite books are The Odyssey, The Alchemist, Into the Fire, American Sniper, The Princess Bride, Moby Dick, and just about anything by Alexander Dumas. I like too many movies to name them all, but if you have a movie quote, I'll bet I could guess the movie.

Introducing Ashley Frey

I love books! This is why I wanted to teach English/Language Arts. I get to talk about books for a living. There's no greater profession.

I graduated from Utah Valley University with a Bachelor of Science degree in English. Later, I started teaching 9th and 10th grade ELA, and I've never looked back. I enjoy making books and learning fun, if at all possible. I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, which you can tell as soon as you walk into my classroom. But those are not the only books I love. I enjoy reading fiction, nonfiction, historical books, and even some biographies.
