My name is Emily Grace Hoppes. I grew up in Alabama, but moved to Mississippi when I got married two years ago. My husband and I then relocated to Utah in January and have loved our time here. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 2015 from the University of Alabama and will be completing my master’s degree in Middle Level Education from Mississippi State University very soon.
This is my first year teaching and I am honored to begin my career with this special class and school. I have an awesome group of fourth graders and I am so excited to spend this year at Mt. Loafer!

I am excited to teach fourth grade this year! This will be my eighth year teaching. Prior to teaching at Mt. Loafer I taught at Canyon Elementary in Spanish Fork and Red Cliffs Elementary in Nephi.
My husband and I live in Payson and are expecting our first baby in January! I graduated from Utah State University with my bachelors degree and completed my master’s degree through Southern Utah University. I am passionate about learning and hope to share that love with my students. In addition to teaching I enjoy relaxing, spending time with my husband, traveling, and watching BYU football.
My name is Christy McGinnis. I grew up in Northwest Ohio but currently live in Provo, Utah with my husband. I recently graduated from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education. I completed my student teaching experience at Mt. Loafer Elementary in 5th grade and I am excited to be returning to the best school ever! This is my first year teaching and I am so excited to be fulfilling my lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. I enjoy singing, baking, reading, playing board games, going on walks, spending time with my friends and family, and (of course) teaching! I am so passionate about teaching young children and I enjoy learning from them every day. I love my 3rd graders and look forward to all of our learning adventures!
Extended Lunch Bell Schedule
School has begun and so the math department has issued its first challenge to our students. The first three Math Muncher problems have been posted. For those who are new to our school, every month the math department posts three math problems on their bulletin board. Each problem is worth tickets to enter a drawing to win a gift card courtesy the math department.
Students who answer these problems correctly can pass them off with their math teacher and recieve tickets. They will then write their name on the ticket and take it to Mrs. Johnson's class to enter the drawing. They always pick a winner from each grade level. The first question is worth one ticket, the second is worth two, and the third, of course, is worth three tickets. If students answer all three correctly they can get six tickets entered into the drawing.
Here is the first math muncher. Can you solve it?
My name is Nancy Cornaby and I'm excited to be teaching at Mt. Loafer. I went to Utah State University and graduated with my bachelor’s degree in education. This is my 13th year teaching and I love it. I have taught kindergarten, first and second grades. I grew up here in Salem and still live here with my family. James and I have four children – 8 year old Nikale, 6 year old Jake, 5 year old Tate, and our Lucy is 2 months. They make life exciting! I had horses growing up so I enjoy riding and I’ve competed in a number of rodeos and horse shows. I still love riding in the mountains gathering cattle with my family. I also enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family.

I am from Southern California, born and raised. I love to read anything by Jane Austen, but Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is my favorite book.
I was classically trained in opera in high school and enjoyed being a part of the choral program for 7 years. For hobbies I enjoy hiking, racquetball, watching movies, playing board games, and making my own homemade ice cream. I taught English in China for 4 months and it is what made me decide to become a teacher!

At Salem Elementary School we are STARS, but what does that really mean? It is more than just the symbol of a star, it actually stands for something: Students and Staff that are Responsible, Respectiful, and Successful.
To help our STARS really shine this year, the whole student body rotated through various stations where they reviewed how to be responsible, respectful, and successful in different routines and areas of the school.
We know we have a great year ahead of us and our STARS will shine.

In 9th grade English students made "clickbait headlines" to describe an event from their summer. The point is to get people interested in the story by creating an exaggerated headline. Tomorrow students will interview each other and get the real story.
