A huge “shout out” to Cole Valentine, bus driver extraordinaire!  Mr. Valentine chauffeured all of our Spanish Oaks 3rd grade students to and from our BYU women’s basketball game Kids Day field trip today and he was the best.  He regaled us with stories about why school buses are painted yellow, how many fans are on the school bus and how many gallons of diesel fuel a school bus holds.  We learned a lot and had a super good time!  Thank you, Mr. Valentine, for keeping us entertained and getting us to and from our destination safely.  You are truly a Nebo Hero!

Teacher Spotlight Mrs. Young

Submitted by sherri.peterson on Tue, 01/21/2020 - 15:45

Mrs. Young is a speech teacher here at Spanish Oaks.  Her favorite part about teaching is working with the kids, she wants to help them get excited to reach their goals.  She has been teaching for three years.  She has a master’s degree in Speech\Language Pathology.  In her spare time, she loves to read and be outside with her family.  Her dream vacation is going to Hawaii, and relaxing on a warm beach.  If Mrs. Young wasn’t a speech teacher, she would want to be a dancer because it is fun, and she loved the experience as a kid.

Mrs. Stewart’s class has been learning about opinion writing. They read an informational book and then they were able to work in groups and come up with reasons why it would be great to have animal eyes, ears, hair, teeth, tails and noses. They came up with some really wonderful reasons of how they could do amazing things.
