Teacher Carly began her teaching career as a teenager working with students with special needs in her local community. Since then, Carly has taught chess to elementary students, psychology to highschool students, and English to students of every age in between. Carly graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor's degree in secondary education with endorsements in English and Psychology. Carly has always enjoyed helping students reach their potential and witnessing the 'light bulb' moment when students grasp a difficult concept or skill. Carly is passionate about literacy and hopes to instill a love of words and reading in all her students. When she's not teaching or spending time with her family, Carly enjoys reading, knitting, sewing, and crocheting.
Along with bringing yourself and your child to class each week, parents are asked to:
- Act as a classroom aid, helping the teacher on a rotating basis with other parents.
- Bring a healthy snack for your child's class (also on a rotating basis).
- Attend and participate in parenting education discussion and meetings.
- Participate in and support the fundraising activities of the Coop.
Parenting Education is available at each session facilitated by an instructor from Peninsula College. Topics include child development, community resources, and other appropriate topics in parenting.
