Biography


Mandy Bush

Librarian

Hi! My name is Mandy Bush and I am so excited to be the librarian here at Scholar Academy! I was born in Utah but moved away when I was six. My family and I moved around quite a bit and I have lived in Utah, Nevada, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Wisconsin, Colorado, and Idaho. Whenever we moved, one of the first things my mom did was take us to the local library and get us a library card. I have always loved libraries and books. They are my happy place. I consider myself a fairly voracious reader and reading is generally my go to activity. I never leave home without a book (or two or three).

I received my associates degree from Ricks College (before it was BYU-Idaho) majoring in Animal Science. While attending college, I met my husband Jake and we have been married for 18 years. We have 2 sons, both of whom attend Scholar Academy. My sons are both adopted and I have a big love for open adoption. I love to talk adoption and share their unique stories. We have lived in Tooele for the past 6 years after moving here from Idaho Falls, Idaho. While living there, I worked as a librarian tech for the City of Idaho Falls Public Library. I have always thought that being a librarian would be the perfect job – and I was right!

I really look forward to getting to know and work with all the students here. I hope to help the children build their own love of books and reading. I like the saying, “reading is for awesome people” and these are some awesome kids!
