Meet the Teachers

Mrs. Hazel

This will be my first year teaching at Wasatch Christian School, but my sixth year teaching grades Kindergarten through Second. I love teaching lower elementary and sharing the excitement of learning, exploring, and fun that we get to have together! I am currently continuing my education through Western Governors University in early childhood education and I love teaching math and reading! I can’t wait to explore exciting math quests with you and help you become a better reader and expose you to lots of new reading adventures! I have three beautiful girls that are my sunshine to the world and an amazing, hardworking husband. As a family we love to travel and see new places. This summer we went on a remarkable holiday down to Australia! This trip was full of new experiences and stunning views. I am eager to share my experiences with you and hear all about the amazing experiences you have had throughout your life!
