Brittany graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Utah. While obtaining her degree, she had a unique opportunity to work with students, teaching science and assisting with the English as a Second Language program. Eager to be involved, she worked with various after-school programs teaching journalism and Jazz/Ballet dance. These experiences instantly ignited her love for teaching. The spark continued after graduating from the University of Utah as Brittany moved to California and worked at a local elementary school as an assistant. During this experience, she decided to obtain her Teaching Credential from California State University-San Marcos with an increased understanding of differentiating lesson plans and more importantly addressing various students’ needs and learning styles. While learning classroom management, the program improved her appreciation of creating hands-on lessons. After having her daughter, Brittany developed a true appreciation and understanding of child development and the need to embrace the individual child as a whole. She further understood that each child progresses at his or her own developmental pace socially, emotionally, and physically while expressing his or herself in many forms. After serving 10 years as part of a military family, Brittany and her family are returning to Utah. Brittany is thrilled to be relocating back to the area and feels very privileged to be given this incredible opportunity with Wasatch Charter School. In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, long walks, and going to see any theater productions.
