1st Grade Teacher
My name is Ayla Pratt. I'm super excited for my first year at Hawthorn Academy teaching 1st grade!
I graduated Southern Utah University in Cedar City with a bachelor's degree in Family Life and Human Development with an emphasis in Early Childhood Development. After graduating I taught preschool for 2 years when I had the opportunity to try teaching kindergarten at a charter school. I immediately felt it was exactly what I was meant to do and decided to go through the alternate route to licensure program to get my teaching license. I taught kindergarten for 4 years before taking a year off to have my youngest son.
I have been married to my husband for 3 amazing years. I have 3 sons – 10, 6, and 1. My older 2 will be attending Hawthorne Academy for the first time this year!
My family and I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible! We love to go camping, ride dirt bikes and 4-wheelers, go fishing, boating, swimming, and spending time with our family and friends at our cabin.
Teaching kids takes a team. I'm excited to be a part of this year's team with the faculty and staff at Hawthorn Academy along with its parents and students!
