Chinese 1st Grade
My name is Peifen Carter. I am from Taiwan. I am graduated from National Pingtung University, with bachelors degree in Applied English in 2011. After graduation I went to BYU English Language Center to have more English experience. Language is always my favorite subject. It is my pleasure to have Chinese as my native language. I am very happy to have a chance to teach in Aspen elementary this following year. This is a very good opportunity for me. I like kids and I believe we would have a very fun year.
My name is Jaylynn Payne. I was born and raised in Arkansas. I graduated from Arkansas State University in 2011 with my degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught in Arkansas for three years and taught first and second grades while there. I am very excited to be moving to Utah this summer to be closer to family and to teach second grade at Aspen! My hobbies include spending time with family and friends, reading, and running. Teaching children is my passion, and I feel blessed to be able to continue to do this at Aspen Elementary.
Chinese 2nd Grade
Hi, my name is Zhou, Shijia. I’ve been teaching for three years in China. I graduated from Huihua College of Hebei Normal University with my degree in Literature. I like to read and run. I’m excited to teach Chinese in the second grade at Aspen! I love kids very much. I hope I could see them soon. We will be playing games, watching movies, making craft works, speaking to Chinese students online, but we’ll have our rules and consequences also. My expectations for my students are: have fun, learn a lot, be respectful. Let’s work together and make 2016 a wonderful school year.
My name is Carlie Christensen. I was born and raised in Murray and now live in Eagle Mountain. I played competitive softball up until high school and loved participating in choir each year. With the little free time I have, I love to read, play board games and video games, and, of course, I love to sing. I’m excited to be in the 4th grade next year and that I get to consider myself an Aspen Eagle!
My name is Moniqua Duncan. I am a new fifth grade teacher at Aspen this year! This will be my first year teaching. Previous to working at Aspen, I worked for 5 years as a Teacher’s Assistant in a first grade classroom. I love the Fine Arts and love to find ways to add them to my teaching. I also enjoy being active. One of my favorite things to do during the summer is hike Y Mountain. I look forward to meeting my new class and being apart of the Aspen Family.
