Mrs. Squire

Hello, 5th graders and families!  I’m so excited for this upcoming year – it promises to be a great new adventure.  I believe that the best kind of learning takes place when we are out of our comfort zone and keep a positive attitude.  I also believe that if we accept and learn from our mistakes, and keep trying, we can be successful at anything.  I can’t wait to meet you!

I grew up in Utah where I loved spending time with my grandmas – one was a voracious reader and the other an adventurer.  They, along with my wonderful parents and teachers, encouraged my love of learning. . . anything and everything.  I feel so blessed to spend my days sharing the joy of learning with my students.  I’ve taught (and dearly loved) several grades, but my current home is fifth grade. . . and it ROCKS!  I love building a class community and helping students understand the importance of being a good citizen and a person of character. 

After graduating from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, I began my teaching career at the same elementary school that my parents attended. . . and some of their teachers were still there!  I took a break from teaching when my husband received a commission in the United States Navy.  We were stationed in Washington, California, Sicily, and Maryland, and had the adventures of a lifetime.  Our family was drawn to this area and we have been blessed to raise our family here for the past 14 years.  My husband, Stuart, and I have 4 grown children and are still getting used to being empty nesters.  In addition to teaching, I love baking, traveling, playing games with my family, and reading about U.S. history.  I’m a firm believer in learning something new each day and thinking positively.  I love being part of our Paramount family!
