Hello! My name is Rachel Bateman and I am so happy to come home to Ascent Academy. I was part of the original team that started Ascent in West Jordan and can't tell you how excited I am to open another location of such an incredible school. I have had the joy of being in the teaching field for almost 10 years, which includes preschool through sixth grade. I have a bachelors degree from the University of Utah in Early Childhood Education and a Masters Degree from the University of Phoenix in education as well. As a teacher, I strive to support my kiddos with opportunities to learn and think outside the box; as well as lead them to apassion for learning.
I have a beautiful family that consists of my loving husband Jake, our 3 fur babies (Oakley, Sammy, and Izzy), 1 cat (Shystie) and 3 chickens. I love doing any kind of art/crafts and enjoy time on my motorcycle, travelling, camping and snuggling up with a good book. I can't wait to get the year started and meet you!
