Hello hello! I am Gabi Giles. I have been teaching at Scholar Academy since 2016. I absolutely love teaching! I was nominated for the“Rookie of the Year” award in 2018. I love collaboration in the classroom so if your student has me, you will probably hear them talking about working with their peers often! I am very grateful and excited to teach 2nd grade!
A little bit about me:
I grew up here in Tooele with my parents and four siblings. I attended Southern Utah University and graduated with my bachelors in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Early childhood. When I am not busy in my classroom, I enjoy reading books, hiking in the mountains, yoga and spending time with my loved ones.
