Our Administrative Team


Amanda Gagestein, Director

I consider it to be an honor and a blessing to be at Wasatch Christian School, where I have the privilege to teach children about Jesus and His love for them. I am passionate about educating young children and teachers. In 2002, I earned my Early Childhood degree from Weber State University and my Utah state education license.  In 2007, I had the privilege to help start Wasatch Christian, and since then have directed or taught every grade from preschool to 7th grade. I love mentoring teachers and watching my students flourish. I enjoy teaching how to prepare, plan, and implement hands on activities to keep students learning and engaged.  I have five beautiful, fun children and a wonderful husband that I enjoy exploring God's beautiful creation with through a multitude of outdoor activities including traveling in the U.S and abroad.  I look forward to serving your family.


Natalie Garr, Asst. Director

I am grateful to serve the children and families of Wasatch Christian. I love Jesus and hope to share his love with everyone I come into contact with. My husband and I are proud parents of 8 and just welcomed our first grand baby . I have worked with children for more than 20 years in special education, kindergarten, and children's ministry. I enjoy hiking, reading, and swimming. I am so happy to be a part of Wasatch Christian's team.

My husband, Tom, and I have been married 37 years.  We were blessed with five children and seventeen grandchildren. I have been enjoying getting to know the children while working here at Wasatch Christian.  Our staff is so dedicated to the the children and teachings of the Lord.  I am proud to be a part of the WCS family! In my free time, I like to quilt, read, and camp with my family.


Rev. Catherine Tobey, Administrator

After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Theology and Spanish Language and Literature from Whitworth University, I went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary and was ordained as a minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA). ​For two years, I was trained in trauma-informed, intergenerational ministry at an inner-city church that offered secular after-school programs focused on art, story-writing, and leadership. I am passionate about mindful teaching, asset-based community development, and building relationships across all axes of difference. 


Chantel Sawyer, Asst. Administrator

My husband and I have two beautiful daughters, 2 big dogs, and  2 cats. Last year, we were able to by a home up in Tremonton and I love it out there. I grew up in a small town, similar to Tremonton, in Colorado and moved to Utah 3 years ago. I am starting school this fall for psychology and want to eventually become an FBI agent. I absolutely love being around all the children and  enjoy having the opportunity to learn the business side of the school.
