Ms. Lynette Jacobsen

Lead Teacher

Lynette lives with her husband and 5 kids in Emigration Canyon.  Apart from living in Missouri and Arizona for several years each, Utah has always been her home.   Lynette graduated with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Utah.  She recently obtained her associate teaching license with the state of Utah.  

 

She has spent several years involved in teaching preschool whether at a neighborhood school or at home.  She has also taught ESL online to children in China.   In addition, she taught a music maker class at her home for neighborhood kids to enjoy and participate in. 

As an educator, Lynette feels strongly about allowing kids to gain confidence by accomplishing and learning new things through exploring with curiosity and creativity.  She also believes developing fine motor skills and learning numbers and letters are important for young children as they prepare for kindergarten.

Lynette’s passions include reading, painting (or any kind of art), baking, camping, and spending time outdoors with her family.  She loves to play volleyball and softball, but currently spends a lot of time watching her kids play and enjoy these sports.

Ms. Christen Bridgewater

Assistant Teacher

Christen’s greatest joy has always been growth via learning, and she delights in sharing that process of discovery and expansion with others. Christen has worked for many years as a private childcare provider, and she is excited to extend her work with children to the classroom setting. Christen loves kids’ earnest playfulness, as well as their present-moment focus, and she greatly enjoys the role of nurturing guide to the little ones in her life.

Originally from Southern California, Christen spent the past decade in the Chicago suburbs, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Psychology. In addition to her work with families and children, Christen spent several years in the wellness industry, working with groups and private clients, and she loves coming alongside both children and adults as a supportive, encouraging presence.

When she’s not nose-deep in a book or writing project, Christen can be found enjoying the challenge and community of the local Crossfit gym, teaching yoga, or soaking up the beauty of Park City’s trails.
