Welcome our New 1st Grade Teacher

Posted in News & Announcements

My name is Kylie Smith and I grew up on a cattle ranch in windy West Texas. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Teaching English Language Learners. I have spent the past year teaching 5th grade and can't wait to get started in first grade at Edgemont!

Sunshine makes me happy. I will often stand outside like a sunflower, trying to soak in all of the sunshine I can. I am a very energetic person and can often be heard singing as I work. I love sports and will play softball, volleyball, or tennis every chance I get. I am an avid Texas Tech Red Raiders football fan. 

I am so excited to be joining the team at Edgemont. I can't wait to meet the students in my class and begin an amazing year of learning! See you soon!

Welcome our New Kindergarten Teacher

My name is Rachael Kent and I am from the Syracuse, New York area. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from SUNY Oswego and a Master's degree in Early Reading and Literacy from Walden University. I have been teaching Universal Pre-Kindergarten for the past 9 years. I absolutely love working with young learners. 

My husband and I have 5 children ages 2-9. We love participating in youth sports. We are also big fans of Syracuse University basketball! NY is known for it's pizza and wings, which is one of our favorite things to eat! The good news is that we also love Mexican food and are happy to trade pizza for Cafe Rio! 

I currently own and operate a photography business. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies. I also love to take my kids to the beach and go camping. 

I am beyond thrilled to be working as a Kindergarten teacher for Edgemont. It truly is my dream job. My family and I will be moving west in the near future. I can't wait to meet everyone! 

More Moving On

Welcome Our New 5th Grade Teacher

Posted in News & Announcements

My name is Katie Gause.  I'm excited and optimistic for my adventure at Edgemont. I just finished my 6th year of teaching. I've taught 5th, 6th, and 7th grades. Math and science are my favorite subjects. I taught secondary math for a year but missed literacy instruction so much that I promptly returned to elementary teaching. Recess and PE are also favorites of mine.

I'm an aunt to four incredible youngins. They live in St. George, so I make regular trips to see them, read with them, adventure with them, and laugh with them. They bring me endless joy.

I completed my first century bike ride last summer and will tackle that ride again this summer. In addition to biking, I enjoy being outside for other adventures or even just to read a good book on the patio.

I am often found downtown for Utah Symphony and Opera performances, taking in a show at the Pioneer Theatre, or at Twilight concerts and other similar events.
