Hello! Thank you for visiting my webpage.
My name is Mrs. Gibbons and I am thrilled to be teaching 2nd grade at Oak Valley Elementary School. This is my first full-time teaching job and I couldn't possibly be more excited to get to know your kiddos. Prior to accepting this job with OPS, I have done a wide variety of things to prepare me for this experience ranging from teaching preschool to substitute teaching for Westside and Millard Public Schools.
When I am not teaching, I love spending time with my family! I have been married to my best friend, Sean, for almost 11 years. We have two beautiful children, Sophie and Holden. We enjoy spending time outside, boating, building forts, and watching movies together.
I am very excited about working with you and your child and have many fun & engaging activities planned for our year together. I look forward to working together to help your child reach their full potential. If you need anything or have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email or phone.
