In 2010, my husband, daughter, and I moved to Tooele and we have lived here ever since. We have three awesome kids. We love to be outside on the tramp, at the park or just playing around. I love to play softball and craft. We love to spend time with all our extended family in Salt Lake. I am looking forward to a great year!!!

Hello Scholar Academy families, my name is Katy Rawlins and I am excited to be teaching 5th and 6th grade this year! I enjoy traveling, running and the outdoors. I really enjoy teaching science and literature. I canít wait to share my love of learning with your student. I grew up in the Cache Valley area and graduated from Logan High School in 2003. After high school I attended college at Utah State University, where I met my late husband. I graduated with a dual major in Sociology and Elementary Education in 2011. After college, I taught for the Cache County School District as a classroom teacher in several different grade levels until, the beginning of this past summer. I lost my husband to cancer back in 2016 and, decided that it was time for a change for my son and I. My 5-year-old son who will be attending Scholar this year, so I am a Scholar parent as well. We relocated to Tooele over the summer and, I couldnít be more excited about this new journey. Teaching is my passion. There is nothing better than watching students learn and grow. I look forward to getting to know you during a fun and exciting year!
