Audrey has been in education for 26 years. 15 years as a High School Biology/PE Teacher/coach and 11 years as a middle school Assistant Principal in the Jordan School District. When it comes to leadership, Audrey’s approach is transparent, reflective, and collaborative. She embodies the idea that nurturing is different from just looking after someone or something—it is caring for and encouraging someone’s growth or development. She believes it is imperative that each student and teacher feels nurtured during the educational experience and her warm heart and deep belly laugh are infectious. Audrey is passionate about using the lens of restorative practices to emphasize repairing harm within the school community. She focuses on the Social and Emotional well-being of each student and adult and fosters relationships of trust. Audrey understands the power of “we,” she is the first to believe and the last to give up, she knows the importance of fun and can look past the tough facade and see the heart of those she works with. Audrey shapes a culture of trust, transparency, and vulnerability and motivates those around her to be better teachers for our students every day. She was the APOY for the State of Utah in 2020 and a National Finalist for the National Assistant Principal of the Year in 2020.
