This is my first year teaching for this program and I absolutely love it! I have my bachelor’s degree in secondary education pedagogy and have taught many years, off and on, mostly substituting as my children grew up. Early in my career, I also taught at the missionary training center in Provo, UT, teaching the Tagalog language. I have an intense love for immigrants trying to integrate into our communities and want to do everything I can to empower them in achieving their goals here in the United States. I have found my home here with the Alpine Adult Education program and am so excited to be working with all the excellent teachers and staff here.
My name is Andrew Pratt. I come from a small sheep farm in northwest Ohio. I speak Mandarin Chinese, Dutch, Spanish, and English. I have a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and a master’s degree in Bilingual Education Research and Teaching English to speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). For several years I’ve had the privilege to live and work in various countries around the world. This is my first year working at Alpine Adult Education and I’m grateful for this opportunity to listen and to learn from those whom I teach and work with. In my spare time I enjoy travelling, swimming, hiking and cooking.
Hi! I am Rachel Keket. I was born and raised in New Mexico. I attended BYU in Provo and graduated from BYU Hawaii in 2011. While there, I met my husband. We now have 4 kids. I studied International Cultural Studies with an emphasis in Communications. I really enjoy the diversity of the world and am fascinated by how people communicate and the beauty of each language and culture. I now teach English in the Adult Education Program at Suncrest Elementary. This is my first year, but I am enjoying it very much!
I am from Ecuador and I have been working for the district for more than 10 years. I got my degree in Marketing which is a reason I love working with people and talking to them. I have two children, and we love going on walks to experience Utah’s scenery. I also enjoy running, dancing, and spending time with my family eating and singing karaoke.
I come from a family of teachers, both of my parents were teachers, my grandmother and even my great grandmother were teachers. So, teaching might be in my DNA, as you may have guessed I also enjoy genealogy. I am fortunate to teach English Language Learners, they are amazing students, willing to work hard, and create new opportunities for their family. Being a part of that journey is a privilege for me. I have a degree in Music therapy and have worked as a substance abuse counselor, currently I also teach water aerobic classes at the local pool and occasional genealogy classes.
