About Me

Hi Welcome to First Grade,
 
My name is Michele Morrison, I have been teaching for about 29 years and have enjoyed every minute of it! I have three degrees, an AS in Early Childhood Education, BA in Humanities and a BA in Early Childhood Education. I come from a long line of educators and education is very important to me.
 
I live in Sandy Utah, but I am originally from Omaha Nebraska. My husband Chadd and I have two children a son who 17 and a Senior at Judge Memorial and a Daughter who is 16 and a Sophomore at Jordan High School in Sandy. As a family we love to go hiking, biking, camping and taking drives to new places. In my free time I love to read, go exploring with my husband and taking walks with our dog Felix. 
 
I am looking forward to a great time with your students and have a ton of fun learning experiences planned for this year!
 
Looking forward to meeting you and your student,
Mrs. Morrison
