From a Silverwolf to a Jaguar
Some of you know that I have been looking for a different job closer to home. With gas prices climbing, the 45 minute commute to Riverton each day is just not feasible any more. Jared and I talked it over, and even though it would be hard to start again at a new school, we feel that Alpine District is the place for me next year. After interviewing at several different schools throughout the district, I was offered a teaching position at Orem Jr. High School. You can view pictures of the school on their website. I have loved working at Riverton and I will miss my friends and the supportive administration that I have found there. I will especially dearly miss my students. I hope that I will be able to return next Spring to see Kali, Nic, Camille, and Jalissa graduate. I will also miss my stubborn little sophomore, Brandi. Josh, Treasure, and Scott will also be missed, but I would be missing them next year anyway as they are graduating and will be going on to South Valley next year. I am excited, though, to start at a new school. It will be interesting getting to know a new faculty and staff, as well as getting used to the new demographic of Jr. High students. More info will follow, but right now I'm just very excited to have a job in a great district and a great school that is only 10-15 minutes away from home.
