Submitted by jenn.moxon on

Happy, fun, efficient, nice, awesome, helpful, funny, and playful are just a few of the character traits of our very own Mrs. Carter, who had her happy 1/2 birthday yesterday!  We are so happy that we get to have her at our school!

Mrs. Carter grew up in Duchesne Utah, but has lived here in Spanish Fork for a long time!  She loves Mexican food, romance novels, and going on cruises.  Mr. and Mrs. Carter also like to go 4-wheeling, camping, and playing with their 9 grandchildren.
