I am so excited after 20 years to have graduated from elementary school and get to join Mt. Nebo Middle School.

I am looking forward to seeing many familiar faces and meeting lots of new students. This summer has been busy visiting family in Hong Kong and going up to Alaska to fish. Later this summer I will be in a demolition derby, driving our old minivan. I can't wait to help students check out books and create things in our maker space. I have twin boys that are headed to college in the fall. A daughter at Maple Mountain High and another at Maple Grove Middle.

It is hard to believe but teachers do have a life outside of school! We want to show what some of our teachers enjoy doing to relax and recuperate for the coming year!

Here is Mrs. Olson cooling down in the water with family!

 "Hi, I'm Megan Cieslak! I'll be teaching our orchestra classes here at Mt Nebo Middle! I've been playing string instruments for about 17 years, and I have had the privilege to play with artists like Jenny Oaks Baker and Family, Alex Boye, Lexi Walker, and many other fantastic musicians. When I'm not playing or teaching music, I like to spend time with my husband and my two giant dogs by hiking, mountain biking, playing pickleball or watching movies! When I was in middle school, I was usually found reading books, hanging out with friends or practicing my viola."

I am so excited to teach here! I used to do construction - specifically I worked with brick masons. I am currently getting my degree in History and Social Studies Education at UVU. One of my favorite time periods to read about is the 1800s to the mid 1900s,  however when I was in middle school I loved Greek and Roman myths. This summer I got married and moved over here - there’s been a lot of changes and it’s been great! I can’t wait to teach Utah and world history this year.

Hello Mt. Nebo!

I am so excited to teach 6th grade science! I’ve taught 6th, 5th, & 3rd grades, but 6th graders are definitely my favorite. I grew up in Pleasant Grove and graduated from BYU where I was a member of the Ballroom Dance Company. My husband and I have been married for 21 years and we live in Salem . We have two teenage boys and a cute puppy named Finn. If I'm not at school, you can find me at the golf course or soccer field with my boys, or enjoying a churro and riding Space Mountain at the Happiest Place on Earth. I’m thrilled to be teaching at Mt. Nebo and I can’t wait to get this school year started!

Zoë Trainor

Hello everyone!

My name is Zoë Trainor and this will be my first year teaching at Mt Nebo Middle School. Here are a couple of things about me! I’m from Portland Oregon, and I went to Oregon State University for my BFA and Utah Valley University where I am finishing my Masters’ degree in Secondary Art Education. I am very passionate about creativity and especially having fun in art. I often paint portraits of pets and animals, especially cows! Outside of school, I love to run and have a goal of running a marathon all 50 states. I will be running #4 (Nevada) in October! Some of my favorite things to do include going on tandem bike rides, playing soccer, making homemade ice cream, visiting national parks and reading adventure books. Something I always love to talk about is what people like to read- and I’m always looking for good recommendation! 

Meet Abigail Daniel!

My name is Abigail Daniel and I’m excited to be teaching 7th grade science this upcoming school year. I recently graduated from BYU with a degree in biological science education. When I was in middle school, Missouri (my home state) saw one of the largest ever cicada broods emerge, so I spent most of my time running around our family's farm collecting the molts left behind by the adult bugs. Which my sister and I called roach brooches. I still love collecting insects, spending time outdoors, and trying my best to keep my little city garden alive.
