Submitted by david.thacker on Mon, 08/09/2021 - 09:55

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!

 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!
