About Mrs. Mather
I was born in the state of Maine where my parents originate. I lived there until I was five and then my family moved to California where I grew up as the youngest of five children. I went to Utah to attend B.Y.U. and received my Bachelors degree there. I met my husband while in Utah and we have seven children, six sons and one daughter. We currently have five adult children and two teenagers. When I went back into the workforce I knew that I wanted to work with children in a school setting. I worked at the Provo School District Preschool as a paraprofessional for four years and that’s when I decided that I wanted to be a teacher. I loved my job and I enjoyed working with young children with special needs. I also loved working and learning from so many wonderful teachers. I left the preschool so that I could pursue my dream of becoming a Kindergarten teacher. While in the process of getting my teaching license I also worked as an Instructional Aide for first, second, fourth and fifth grades. It was a great feeling to get my teaching license and I am grateful that I am about to begin my fourth year of teaching Kindergarten. Helping young children learn and gain confidence in themselves and their abilities is an important teaching philosophy that I foster in my classroom.
