Bryson Young
Special Education
Email | Supply List

Good Afternoon! My name is Bryson Young. I am new to Scholar Academy and will be in the Special Education Department. I have spent time working as a Behaviour Specialist in Idaho Falls and an Inclusion Specialist in West Valley. I have also spent time as an afterschool program coordinator in Cedar City and as a volunteer sports coach in South Salt Lake. I have spent most of my life around children and I love working with them.
While I do believe children (and adults) need to move often to stimulate learning, using the environment to learn is also critical. There is something to learn wherever you go, not just in the classroom.
I have 4 kids and a wonderful wife. I have lived in Japan and India. I enjoy anything Asian, especially eating octopus and squid. I have started learning about archery and playing the violin. I am not good at either but look forward to practicing to become better. I also enjoy cooking and grilling.

Kara Larsen
Behavior Specialist

Hello! My name is Kara Larsen and I love being part of the scholar team! This is my second year here and I look forward to filling my new position as the school’s behavior specialist. Prior to joining the Scholar team, I worked as a qualified intellectual disability professional in West Jordan for 20 years. My heart has a special love for those with disabilities and working with them brings me joy! I am currently attending GCU working towards my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and special education. I am so grateful for all that I am learning that adds to my experience! I am a people lover but especially love to be around children. Seeing the world through their eyes brings so much wonder and innocents. I am a lover of vision boards, Chakra and breathing exercises, journaling, and nature. I am a firm believer that it is important to be in touch with our feelings as it allows us to enjoy life and experience things in their entirety. I have Tourette Syndrome and served as the Utah chapter chair from 2012-2016. I have been happily married for 11 years and we have a 3-year-old little girl and two dogs who keep us on the go! I love smiley faces, yellow and all things happy! I love to bake and ran a bakery from my home for several years, now just enjoying it for fun! I look forward to working with you and your kids this year!
