This will be the second year of teaching for Mandy Green with the DaVinci Academy. Mandy received a Bachelor's Degree in Humanities from Brigham Young University. Mandy currently teaches our third and fourth-grade split class. She particularly enjoys teaching history and learning about the world around us. Mandy just celebrated 19 years of marriage with her husband and they are the parents of three children. Mandy loves to travel, study ancient texts, lounge in the sun and laugh. To her, the world is not complete without diet coke, chocolate covered cinnamon bears, and flamingos.
I have been with DaVinci for 4 years and I absolutely love my job! I have been married to my husband Dustin, who is a protective services officer for the Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Department, for almost 22 years. We have three sons (20, 19 &15) and a daughter (7) who are my heart and soul. Before Davinci I worked as an office manager and apprentice to a real estate appraiser until I quit in 2001 to foster a 4-year-old child with special needs who now has become a permanent member of my family. I was a stay-at-home-mom from 2001- 2014 when I got back into the workforce and began teaching for Davinci. I also have two dogs who I love (almost) as much as my kids, Willow who is a standard poodle and Lucy who is a goldendoodle. In my spare time I love to decorate! My poor husband never knows what changes he’s going to come home to and has learned to “expect the unexpected”. I enjoy finding old pieces of furniture and redoing or restoring them. I love to go to movies and get more excited for the popcorn and soda than the movie itself. I love to read and hope that some of my passion for books can be passed along to my students. I love the friends I’ve made while teaching for Davinci and I am truly blessed to be part of the lives of all these amazing students.
This is my second year working for DaVinci Academy, and the second school I have taught at. I received a Bachelors degree in History from the University of Utah and have minors in Spanish and Sociology. I love to learn and new things and enjoy teaching. I am married and have three kids, two cats, and three fish. I like to run and enjoy traveling for fun races. My family likes to camp, hike and spend time with each other outdoors. I love to read and historical fiction is my favorite genre.
This is my second year working for Davinci. In 2015 I retired from Zion’s Bank where I worked for over 30 years. Prior to that I was a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines and based in New York. This was a fun time in my life but I knew that New York was not where I wanted to live forever so I made my way back to Utah where I met my husband, Gary, and married him in 1974. Gary and I have three beautiful daughters and seven amazing grandchildren who are our whole world. We also have two standard poodles, Roxie and Flynn, who keep us company when the grandkids aren’t around. I have a passion for Ford Mustangs and owned my first one in 1966 (sure wish I still had that one!).
