About Mrs. Jenkins

I grew up just across the way at the foot of Mount Olympus in East Mill Creek.  After graduating from Skyline High School I went on to the University of Utah where I began my teaching and learning education.  I recently returned to Utah after living in Connecticut where I taught 5th Grade Math at Elm City College Preparatory Middle School in New Haven, a school serving the underprivileged.  My husband and I loved our time spent in charming New England living in a small shoreline town, but I missed my family in Utah and am so happy we’ve returned.  My three children are the pride and delight of my life.  If my children are the lights of my life, then my grandchildren, or grands, as I call them, are my sparklers; I have nine of them! Five boys and four girls.  Oh, and I suppose I do have one more furry family member, our Golden Retriever, Bo.  In my spare time I enjoy working in my garden, reading, quilting, family gatherings, entertaining, collecting children’s books, riding Tasket, my blue coaster bike, and scootering with my husband, the fantastic Mr. Jenkins.  I feel completely fortunate to have returned to my roots in the mountains and am thrilled to be a part of Canyon Rim Academy.
