Tawny is so excited to be returning for another year at Ignite. Last year, she was our Distance Learning teacher, but she cannot wait to join our Special Education team this year. Tawny developed her love for teaching as a student observing her father teach his various college courses at Utah Valley University. Her passion for teaching stems from watching each student learn and grow. From her past professional experience as a teacher of a self-owned preschool, and her ongoing personal experience as a mother of three children, she understands that each child learns differently, and she cannot wait to help each student understand his/her unique learning style. Tawny has been married to her husband, Kalani for 19 years and has three wonderful children, Kolby, Riley, and Lily. Her greatest joy is being a wife and a mother. She loves to travel (Oregon is her favorite place). She grew up in theater and goes to as many shows as possible. In her free time she enjoys reading, listening to podcasts and spending time with her family.
