Welcome our New First Grade Teacher

Posted in News & Announcements

Hi Edgemont! My name is Tiffany Evans and I am from Kansas City, Missouri. I received my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from Cornell College in small town Mount Vernon, IA. After graduation, I went to Buckeye, Arizona to teach 1st grade for three years. Then I came back to the midwest, received my Masters in Elementary Education and taught three more years in first grade..  Now on to our last destination, UTAH! 

My husband and I loved vacationing and visiting family in Utah, so we decided to move our family there. I love spending time with family, especially my two little boys, who keep me very busy.  My husband and I love having date nights and participating in MUD Runs! I also enjoy playing volleyball, baskettball, racquetball, throwing around the football, and being outside. I have also found a new love for hiking, as well as horseback riding. I am also a very avid KU basketball fan and loyal Kansas City Chiefs and Royals fan! 

I am looking forward to my new teaching adventure at Edgemont Elementary and meeting my new group of kiddos!

Welcome Our New 5th Grade Teacher

Posted in News & Announcements

Hi Edgemont! I'm Jennifer Turner and I'm super excited to start my new adventure as a 5th Grade Teacher at Edgemont! I have been teaching for 6 years. I received a bachelor's degree in English, from the University of Utah (Go Utes!) and a master's degree in elementary education from the University of Phoenix. 

I enjoy reading, watching movies, playing with our new puppy, being silly with my girls, seeing plays and improv comedy.   I am addicted to Pinterest, and  I love spending time with my family. I have two daughters, Ellie and Masie. Ellie will be attending Edgemont as well. My husband is also a teacher, and we have loved spending our summertime traveling. We've spent weeks traveling across the United States, been able to visit many countries in Europe, and we also taught in South Korea for a few months. As well, we love going to Disneyland any chance we get!

I'm excited to meet my new students and be a part of Edgemont Elementary's future success!

Moving On

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!
