Team Snoopy is about working together and having a blast doing it. We know when to work hard and when to stop and be silly!

A little about Mrs. Morton
This is my 12th year as a teacher and my sixth year at Jefferson Academy. I have taught sixth, first, and second grades. I loved teaching them all! Before I was a teacher I was a newspaper reporter, copy editor, and designer. My husband still is a newspaper man. He is the sports editor for the online newspaper DeseretNews.com where he gets to do all kinds of cool multimedia things. We have two children. Aiden is in 10th grade, and Adelle is in seventh grade. They both graduated from Jefferson. We all love to play soccer and go hiking. We have two little Yorkie dogs named Hercules and Leo and three parakeets named Daisy, Phoebe, and Sammy.
I love being a teacher and believe that everyone is valuable, everyone can be part of the team, and that our team has to include each student's family in order to be successful. Please don't hesitate to let me know right away if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns. I want your child's classroom to be a safe, happy environment where they can be excited to be every day.
