Annie Jacobson

Early Childhood Education Major

I am a junior majoring in early childhood education. I am from Mesa, Arizona but after 2 years I feel officially converted to the Utah life! Some of my favorite activities include tennis, baking, long drives, and watching movies with friends. I chose Early Childhood Education because I love to learn from children and I believe that teaching truly allows you to make a difference.

Bethany Gold

Elementary Education Major

I’m an elementary education major and Theatre Arts Studies minor. I’m from a town called Hillsboro, Oregon just outside of Portland! I love Disney, doing craft projects, acting, perfecting the art of pasta salad making, and spending time with my friends and family. I have always wanted to be a teacher. In High School I was able to volunteer both in a preschool and in a second grade class, and I absolutely adored it. I can’t wait to have my own classroom one day where I can create a safe and loving environment where children can learn and grow into their best selves!

Elliott Roubicek 

Special Education Major: Severe

I am a senior majoring in special education with an emphasis in severe disabilities. I am from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and last year I transferred from BYU-Hawaii. Some of my favorite things to do are skateboarding, hiking, running, surfing, mountain biking, windsurfing and wing-foiling. I love being outside and having fun! I decided to study Special Education because of the love I have for people who have disabilities and a strong desire to help them do more than what others expect of them.

Alex Llanas

Early Childhood Education Major

I am a senior majoring in early childhood education. I'm from McAllen, Texas, and my favorite things to do include baking, road trips, traveling, running, spending time with my doodle, family, and friends! Since I can remember, I have wanted to be a teacher because I am passionate about helping students from disadvantaged communities succeed and reach their full potential. I want every student who goes through my classroom to feel empowered to achieve anything they set their minds to, just like some of my favorite teachers made me feel. I'm excited to nurture a supportive environment that can help my students grow!

Megan Brinton

Elementary Education Major

I am a sophomore majoring in elementary education with a minor in family life. I am from Spanish Fork, Utah and have five siblings. I love portrait photography, country music, being outside, and spending time with family and friends. Being an elementary school teacher has always been my dream. I have worked in various roles with children including preschool, daycare, and substitute teaching. I love seeing children light up when they understand a concept and gain self confidence in their learning. I’m so excited to be a teacher and influence the lives of my students!
