Lisa Jenkins

English Language Arts 8th Grade Teacher

"I came to Utah Connections Academy because the world is changing, and I want to change with it; I want to gain a broader teaching skill set.

I have been teaching English for nearly two decades, and most of my experience is brick-and-mortar high school, and I have taught in Nevada, Idaho, and now Utah.

Some fun facts about me are that 6 years ago at my brick-and-mortar school, I was voted "favorite teacher to most likely survive a zombie apocalypse" by the students. I also knew I wanted to be a teacher my senior year in high school. I was born in the Portland, OR area, but have lived in many places. "
