Interested in attending Channing Hall?talk to an enrollment coach
5th Grade Teacher
I was born in Hollywood, California. Spent my entire childhood in Southern California, which afforded me many wonderful experiences, which I recount during the course of school year in stories. I always tie my experiences to positive values and a love of life and people. I am a storyteller at heart. I did not plan on being a teacher and certainly not one for 45 years. I was on my way to be a lawyer, when my life shifted dramatically. I moved to Utah, was on my way to an incredible experience during two years in Italy. Having been an almost only child (one older sister by 8 years) with little of no real interest in being with other people, I fell in love with people in Italy! When I returned to Utah I changed schools and majors. I was now going to Brigham Young University and majoring in Elementary Education. Like my experiences of growing up in California brought me wonderful experiences, being a teacher has blessed me with incredible experiences as I taught over 3500 students ranging in age from 8 years to 18. I have also taught adult education classes for 20 years. I owned and operated a cabinet and furniture business for 30 years while teaching and during summers. I am married to a sweetheart who also spent time in Italy. We have 6 children and 13 grandchildren. It is with great anticipation that I await to meet your children and begin an extraordinary journey of learning and transformation. Caio!
