My name is Jennifer James, and I am thrilled to be teaching sixth grade at Meadow Brook this year. I truly believe that I have the best job in the world, and I love learning and making memories with my students.
I have six children (four of whom have now successfully completed sixth grade), and I enjoyed being able to take time off from my teaching career to stay home with them. After my lengthy “mommy retirement” I taught second grade for two years before moving up to sixth grade last year.
Hi! I’m Gracie Amundson, but my students usually call me Mrs. A. I’m not from Utah, but home is not too far away! I’m from a little town in Colorado called Colorado Springs. Just like most of you, I grew up with a view of the mountains and I love being outdoors. I love hiking, playing tennis, and occasionally running. I smile a lot, because life is awesome! I just got married last March to a studly man named Brady, whom I met at a school assembly the year before.
My name is Marina Terry. I have been teaching for 8 years, and have loved every minute of it! I love the chance I have to spend my day with students and watch them learn and grow.
When I am not at school I enjoy spending time with family and friends. We enjoy time outdoors and traveling. I also love to spend quiet time at home reading or watching movies.
I would say one of my biggest passions in life is teaching and my students. I am super excited for this new adventure at Meadow Brook and can't wait to meet all the new students and parents in my class and more!
My name is Kirstie Brickey. I was born and raised in Payson Utah. I have two brothers and two sisters and I am the youngest. I married my best friend D.J. in 2014. When I am not teaching I like to play volleyball and softball. I enjoy spending time with my family by playing games, traveling to Lake Powell, Disneyland or any other destination. I love to read when I get the chance.
My name is Morgan Peterson. I am from Springville, Utah. I cheered and graduated as a Springville Red Devil and a SUU Thunderbird. I also have graduated from UVU with my bachelors in Elementary Education.
I have had the wonderful experience of teaching English to younger children in Mexico for a whole summer as well.
