I am Lauren Lambert and this is my third year teaching first grade, and first year at Scholar Academy. I love teaching first grade and getting to know the little ones! They are so eager to learn and it is wonderful to see them grow. I started my teaching journey at Brigham Young University-Idaho and graduated with a Bachelor�s degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Science. I moved to Utah to start my teaching career and in a miracle, met my husband, and moved to Tooele. We are excited to begin our adventure here and get to know the community!

My name is Cayla Betz and I am a fourth year teacher. I have taught one year in second grade and then found my true calling in first grade. I earned my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis is Language Arts from Utah State University. I grew up in Sanpete County on a farm and developed a strong work ethic and how to help things grow, and that is the same dedication I put into my class. It is my firm belief that mistakes are proof that you are trying. In my class I want my students to feel safe enough to make mistakes and learn and grow from those mistakes. When I am not at school, I love spending time with my husband and two beautiful children, traveling, spending time outdoors and reading. I look forward to teaching your child and working with you.

I'm very excited to begin my year at Scholar Academy! I have been teaching for 5 years, have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and love teaching 1st grade. I am a HUGE Disney fan, and that rings true in my classroom, stamina, lesson plans, and even my Halloween costumes! I am married to my best friend Damien, and am the mama to a little lady named Alice. I am a huge advocate for those with disabilities, because my daughter was born with Down Syndrome, and is the most incredible little human! I believe that everyone has the opportunity and ability to learn, which is specifically why I use so many tactics to reach as many learners as possible. In my spare time, I enjoy reading as much as I can, traveling (especially if it's Disney-related!), painting, and playing with Alice. The way to my heart is definitely through a Diet Coke, and a good book. I'm stoked to start working, and cannot wait to help your students make leaps and bounds this year!
