Hi! My name is Heather Klenk and I am super excited to be teaching 1st Grade here at Hawthorn Academy. I feel so lucky to be apart of the Hawthorn family, they truly are amazing! I grew up in Murray, UT and have continued to live in the Salt Lake Valley ever since. I graduated from Western Governors University with my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management. It didn't take me long to realize that a career in business was not for me. I started pursing my dreams from elementary of becoming a teacher and I have no doubts that this is where I belong.
I have been married for 10 years to my wonderful husband, Chase. We have two beautiful daughters that have brought so much joy to our life. They are ages 10 and 7 and both attend Hawthorn Academy with me. My family is such and amazing support system and I wouldn't be where I am today without them. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to spend our summer weekends at Bear Lake. When we aren't at the lake, we love to go camping, ride horses, have game night, and movie night.
I am looking forward to an exciting year and can't wait to share this journey full of learning and fun with your kids.
