Principal Message- Meet Mrs. Lindley

Happy New Year!!!! I hope everyone had a great Christmas Break filled with family, sleeping in, and yummy food. I am so excited to be here at Park Elementary. It was definitely a surprise to have such a big change happen for all of us, but I welcome this opportunity to be a part of this great community and school. Park Elementary has a history filled with amazing students, teachers and families and I am honored to be here and to continue its legacy.

Let me introduce myself:

I grew up in Emery County in the very small town of Orangeville. I received my Bachelor’s in Elementary and Special Education from Southern Utah University as well as my Master’s in Education Administration from Grand Canyon University. I have worked as a special education teacher in resource, and self-contained classrooms. I was also a district mentor for new special education teachers. For the last year and half I was the Dean of Students and Vice Principal at Spanish Fork Jr High. I can honestly say that I have loved every position I have ever had. I really am living my dream of being an educator.

I live in Salem with my husband Ben and have a 16 year old daughter, Jaylynn and 14 year old twins, Bracken and Brynn. I have no hobbies and spend all of my free time chasing kids around where my oldest daughter is in competitive dance and my other daughter does cheer and gymnastics. My favorite son is involved in all sports but baseball is the family's favorite.

Top 10 things about me:

#1: I hate going on vacations but we did get away for Christmas this year and I loved it.

#2: Coke Zero makes me happy

#3: I hate being cold and I wonder why I don’t live someplace warmer

#4: I love throwing parties

#5: My kids are my best friends

#6: I love my job

#7: The color pink has always been my favorite

#8: My weakness is Muddy Buddies Chex Mix.

#9: I love to organize

#10: Eating healthy is really hard for me. I definitely have a sweet tooth.
