Hello! My name is Kaitlin Lowry and I’m so excited to be teaching at Ascent Academy this year. I was born and raised in Juneau, Alaska in a city surrounded by ocean, mountains, trees, and glaciers. For the last three years I’ve lived in Burley, Idaho. And I’ve recently relocated to Utah to gain new experiences and to meet new people.
I decided to peruse education after tutoring an Elementary fifth grade classroom. The ability to help students see their potential and experience success drew me to this profession. I went to college at Brigham Young University of Idaho where I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Teaching English as a Second Language. For the last three years I’ve been teaching 5th grade in Idaho. Helping students find joy in learning and overcome barriers has been my mission. And now, I’m thrilled to continue teaching fifth grade at Ascent!
In my spare time I love taking pictures, reading, and traveling. On school breaks I visit and spend time with my parents and brothers in Coos Bay, Oregon or my extended family in Boise, Idaho.
