Hi, my name is Janet Scalise. Welcome to a new and exciting year at OPA! Here is a little bit about myself and Mrs. Karren my Teaching Assistant.
I grew up in Centerville, Utah. My husband, Tim and I have 3 children: Anthony, Nicholas, and Sara.
I graduated from Rick’s College with an Associates Degree in Education and then Weber State with a BA in Early Childhood Education. I taught in Davis School District for 12 years and then spent the next several years enjoying being a stay-at-home mom. After my 3 children started school I jumped back into teaching at OPA. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, & 4th grades.
I love sushi, camping and playing games with my family, playing the cello, and reading books!
My Teaching Assistant is Sherri Karren. She and her family live in Ogden. She is a wonderful addition to our class. She graduated from Weber State with a teaching degree. Under my supervision she will be conducting individual and small group interventions for those children that need a little extra time and help with a concept. She loves children and we are lucky to have her in our class!
