Hot Shot- Heritage Mascot

I was born in Alaska to a family of dog mushers. I learned how to dog mush from a very young age and we train year round. Our family dates back to dog mushing as far back as 1732! We used to be used for transportation and mail delivery across Alaska and the US Army even used us for search and rescue missions in remote areas. We respond to our trainers with voice commands and we are considered “family” with our humans because we are extremely loyal. I love to eat! And while we are training and racing, we will eat up to 10,000 calories a day! Some of my teammates are different types of dogs such as Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies, and Eskimo dogs. Every year in March, we compete in the famous Iditarod race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska covering over 1,100 miles. We race in a team of 12-16 dogs, and race for about 10 days, stopping only to eat and rest. Because of my racing background, I love to participate in the Heritage Walk-a-Thon and help encourage our Heritage Huskies get to and from school safely. I also like to participate in Husky Habits teaching our students great ways to respect our school. Please take a look at my Safety Tips and Husky Habits links below. I love being a Heritage Husky!

Tyler Brown- Life Skills

Hello! My name is Tyler Brown. I was born and grew up in Logan, Utah. Much of my life has involved working with people with disabilities, so I decided to make it a career.  I graduated from Utah State in 2016 with a degree in special education with an emphasis in multiple and profound disabilities. Shortly after I graduated, I moved to Colorado Springs. I lived and worked there for three years as a center-based autism teacher and loved every minute of it! My husband and I got married in 2018 in the beautiful mountains of Logan Canyon. Though I loved living in Colorado, my husband and I missed our families and the mountains more! In 2019, we decided to move back! This is my fifth year as a life skills teacher at Heritage and I couldn’t be happier! I believe that every child is capable of growth and learning and love that I get to come to work every day and help them grow!

Kim Day- 1st Grade DLI English

Hello! My name is Kim Day. While my name is short, I am anything but! I often have students ask me just how tall I am - I really am 6 feet tall! Besides the obvious, here are a few things about me:
* I grew up in Orem, Utah but also lived briefly in New York and Louisiana before the age of 5 (I was an adorable "Air Force Brat")
* I am the youngest of 5 girls and no boys. My sisters are my best friends! They affectionately call me the "The Nice One".
* I hated exercise as a child; but now I absolutely love to be active, especially outdoors. I have run a full marathon, several half marathons, and more recently participated in several Spartan races (adult versions of obstacle courses on oversized playground equipment, only you pay an absurd amount of money to do it).
* I attended Ricks College, BYU, and WGU. I received a Bachelor's in Human Development and a Master's in Elementary Education.
* I love to travel! I have been to 27 (and counting) of the 50 States, Canada, Mexico, Spain, and Ireland.
* I am married to an amazing man, all 6'8" of him! I have two spirited and independent daughters who have also inherited our tall genes.
* I previously worked for 13 years at the Dept. of Workforce Services aiding individuals in receiving public assistance
* I am thrilled to teach at Heritage Elementary where the culture and atmosphere are positive and engaging. I seek to influence students' lives for good!

Mary Knight- 5th grade

I moved to Cache Valley from California about 9 years ago, and I love seeing the mountains every day as well as experiencing spring, summer, fall, and winter. I enjoy the snow and cold just as much as the warm summers - when you might find me on a long walk around town or hiking on a canyon trail. I have 3 adult children who I love to spend time with, but it’s challenging because one lives in Arizona, one lives in Louisiana and one is studying in Florida right now. When we are all together, we like to play board games, read, talk about everything, laugh a lot, eat great food, play pickleball, go on hikes, and enjoy being outdoors in God’s beautiful creation. 

I find great joy in working with my students at Heritage and love to watch as they invest in one another, solve problems together, and discover how to be better people. Fifth grade is a great opportunity to learn about what makes America special. It is a year of big changes physically, socially, and emotionally, so we practice extending grace and kindness and never give up on each other.

Becky Cowley- 6th grade

Hello! My name is Becky Cowley and I'm excited to be teaching 6th grade at Heritage Elementary. I graduated from Utah State with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. I have lived most of my adult life in Cache Valley with my husband of 22 years and our son who is in high school. I love spending time with my family whether it's camping, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, or playing board games. My favorite drinks are honey cinnamon breve, a smoothie from Jamba Juice, and coconut lime water. Aside from my husband's delicious cooking I try to eat healthy, and I love fruits and veggies, however, my one weakness is almond creme toffee from Idle Isle.

My classroom goal is to create an environment that fosters a growth mindset by embracing mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow, and by focusing on the power of yet. One of my favorite quotes by Albert Einstein is, "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

Maria Jones- 6th grade DLI Español

I was born in Provo, Utah and moved to Peru when I was three years old, and lived there for 14 years. I was able to meet my grandparents and relatives as well as travel to many areas and learn about different cultural traditions. I loved living 30 minutes from the beach but I've learned to love the mountains too. 

While living in Washington state, I worked as a paraeducator in different grades (Preschool, K, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 8th) and also had experience with Spanish DLI in the younger grades. I was an interpreter/translator for the Logan School District for 10 years.

I love teaching in Spanish and being able to share my culture and traditions with my students.  My passion to teach comes from wanting to help my students contribute to society and prepare them for the future while we enjoy the present and its lessons. I love to teach science and one way to engage my students is to do experiments and projects where they can connect what they learn to their everyday use. Throughout the year, I encourage my students to be leaders, to be kind, to learn from their mistakes, to move forward, and to give their best.

Gretchen Gibbs- Media Specialist

I grew up in Oregon and spent most of my adult life in the suburbs of Seattle, Washington. I miss the trees, but not the traffic. I am married and have three boys ranging from 12-26, and two small dogs named Baxter & Zoe. Our family moved to Cache Valley in 2021 to be closer to family. I never thought I'd find a place I loved more than Washington, but I did. We adore Cache Valley and everyone in it. I spent most of my career in Customer Service and Purchasing until I was able to be a stay-at-home mom where I devoted all my time to my non-profit and volunteering. I have always wanted to be a teacher and centered my volunteering around it. When we moved to Cache Valley, my heartstrings were pulled and I became a Substitute Teacher. From there, everything blossomed and now I have the best job in the world; a Librarian!
