Math Is Fun in Kindergarten at Spanish Oaks

Mr. Hansen, our awesome district math specialist, visited Miss Mellor’s morning kindergarten class today!  They took a walking field trip together to each table to talk about different ways to share 8 “cookies” with two friends for lunch.  We had some great counting and exploration of number decomposition!  Super counting, students! 

Halloween at Spanish Oaks

Ghosts and goblins, witches and ghouls, Halloween was spooky here at our school!  A great time was had by all.  Thanks to mothers for helping with parties, and our 6th grade for their special treat after the parade, and to our student council for their help with Ghostie Grams!

This is my sixth year teaching. I graduated from Utah Valley University with Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. I received my teaching license in Early Childhood Special Education from Utah State University. I truly have a passion for helping children progress at their level and helping them find the joy of learning and being at school. My husband, Cameron and I have been married for 5 and 1⁄2 years. Together we have two adorable little boys, Charles (4), and Henry (3). We love spending time as a family, traveling, swimming, playing super heroes, building with blocks, going to the park and reading.
