Park Elementary Crystal Apple Teacher

We are proud to announce Mrs. Sorensen as Park Elementary Crystal Apple Teacher of the Year! 

Mrs. Sorensen attended Utah Valley University and graduated with a paralegal degree.  She worked as a paralegal for several years before returning back to UVU to pursue a degree in Elementary Education.  She started her career at Park Elementary in 2007 as an intern and has been here ever since!

Mrs. Sorensen has 3 kids of her own: Payton-16, Tyler-14 and Hunter-12.  She spends countless hours watching them participate in all kinds of sports.  She is married to Pat Sorensen, who can be seen regularly delivering a Diet Coke from Sonic to give an extra boost to her dynamic teaching.

Mrs. Sorensen has been instrumental in The Leader in Me program.  She teaches and lives the habits.  She loves her students and she loves teaching 5th grade.  She often does things for her students that go unnoticed.  She is a tremendous leader at Park Elementary.

Mrs. Coates describes her as an amazing teammate—she is very bright and fun to work with.

Congratulations to Mrs. Sorensen on this deserving award!
