Hi, my name is Sylvia Setterberg. I'm so excited to begin my first year at Hawthorn Academy teaching Kindergarten. I've worked in Kindergarten for over 7 years as a para-pro. I love Kindergarten!
I came to teaching a little later than most (this is my second career) and find teaching and learning from children very fulfilling. I love seeing students grow in their understandings of reading, writing, and math concepts. I graduated from Western Governors University in December of 2018 with a Bachelor's in Education. Since then I have worked in the Special Education department at Salt Lake School District.
Outside of school I enjoy traveling with my husband of 26 years. I have two children - a daughter that is getting married this fall and a son that is a senior this year. I also enjoy reading and anything art related (including knitting from time-to-time).
I am looking forward to a wonderful Kindergarten year, filled with learning and fun.
