Terry Whitby

6th Grade

Hello my name is Terry Ann Whitby.  I am your new 5th grade teacher for 2018-2019 school year.  I was born in Missouri at Whiteman, Air Force Base.  My father was in the Military for 22 years and we traveled all over the world with him.  We moved to Utah in 1972  when my father retired from the military.  I went to school in Magna, Utah.I graduated from Cyprus High School and worked for several different companies.  I met my amazing husband on a blind date.  We were married in August 1990.  We have 4 amazing children and one beautiful granddaughter.  I worked as a Special Education Para Educator for 15 years for Nebo School District.  During this time I decided it was time for me to go to college.  I graduated from Utah Valley University in May of 2012, with my Bachelors of Science and my K-6 Teachers license.  I am studying to take my Level 2 Praxis Teaching License right now.  I am so excited to be your teacher for this coming school year.  I have taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten over these last 4-5 years.  I student taught in 5th grade and loved every minute of it. 5th grade has an amazing curriculum and I am so excited for everything we are going to learn and do in our class.   I will be collaborating with the other teachers from Treeside Charter School this summer to plan our instructions for this next year.
