Maddie Gibbons

3rd Grade Teacher

I am so excited to be a part of the Mountainville Academy team! I have lived in Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Portugal, and Utah. I lived in Arizona the longest, so I will always say that I am from Arizona. I live with my husband. We love to play pickleball, tennis, board games (my favorite is LIFE). I enjoy baking, cooking, and looking at cute animals.  

When I was younger, I was passionate about school, family, friends, and soccer. I played soccer for 15 years, but I had to retire from soccer due to multiple knee injuries. My love for athletics led me to study Exercise Science at Utah Valley University. I received a Bachelor’s degree from UVU in Exercise Science in 2020. During the last semester of my undergraduate degree, I realized that I had a love for teaching. I decided to graduate and go back to school once I finished. 2 years later I graduated with a Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Western Governors University. I have a passion for teaching and learning. I am ecstatic for this school year!
