Hello, My name is Annie Magnusson, and I am so excited to be a part of the Ascent Academy family! I have just completed my internship, and will be starting my first year teaching. I was born and raised in Southern California, and graduated from Gonzaga University in Spokane with a Political Science degree. I moved to Utah in 1997, and married my husband a year later. We have four children- two boys, and two girls.
When my youngest began Kindergarten I was offered a position as a Teaching Assistant at a Charter School in Bluffdale. I loved every second I was working with them, and began working toward obtaining my own license, Over the next two years I was able to work with many different grades and teachers. It has been an incredible journey!
I believe that when you teach through a story you can capture a child's imagination and they will soar to great heights! One of my favorite stories is Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll, and I plan to use this story and others to build upon the magical world of our imaginations! Together we will see just how far the rabbit hole of wonder and learning takes us! I can’t wait to start this year and help your children find the spark that helps them achieve their greatest dreams!
