Lila Jensen – 3rd Grade Chinese Immersion

I was born and raised in Taiwan.  For the last 20 years, I have traveled and lived in the US as well as Taiwan and Japan.  I graduated from BYU-Hawaii and have taught Chinese as second language for many years. It’s been my passion to learn and exchange the intercultural experiences with others, especially with youth. I’ve been involved with an international student homestay program and Asian Chinese Speaking group. This is my first year teaching 3rd grade Dual Immersion at Aspen Elementary School.  I enjoy reading books, practicing yoga, and exploring the outdoors with my family. 

Katherine Sanderson – Intern

Hello! My name is Katherine Sanderson (soon to be Katherine Ray) and I’m so excited to be interning at Aspen Elementary this fall. Just a little bit about me- I was born in Maryland and grew up there with my mom, dad, and two older siblings. My dad got a new job and we moved out to Utah in 2000 to the same house my parents still live in today. 

All while growing up school was very important to me and something I worked hard for. I was able to skip a grade and graduated from high school two classes short of having my Associate’s degree through Salt Lake Community College. I’m currently a senior at UVU working towards my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. I love learning and I hope within my career to help all my students gain a love of learning as well!

Johnathan Hale – Intern

My name is Johnathan Hale. I’m from Orem, Utah and have lived in Orem my whole life except for a two year span from 2010-2012, when I lived in the Philippines. The rest of my family (my mom and 4 other siblings) were born in England. I had a British accent as a child. In grade school it slowly wore off. I received my Associates of Science Degree in 2014 from UVU, and am graduating from UVU’s school of education spring 2017. 

My hobbies/interests cover a wide spectrum. A few of them include golf, basketball, hunting, fishing, skiing, sitting on the couch watching football (both the American version and British version of football), hiking, biking, running, camping, reading, learning, and the all time favorite, eating! I also enjoy history and keeping up to date with current events. I love helping others learn and grow and I am excited to be working at Aspen Elementary!
