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.
I am a high energy, creative, Mother, of 4 children. My mission in life is to care for the minds and hearts of children. I desire for every child to find their passion for learning in their own unique and personalized way. I seek to know each child and what drives them to inspire from within. I will cultivate independent thinking, positivity, and a sense of belonging and self-worth to all children within my reach.
My name is Carly Jeffers. I married John Jeffers and we have four wonderful daughters ages 18, 13, 10, and 7. My hobbies include spending time with my family, playing with my dogs, travelling, and supporting each of my girls in their various activities. And last by t not least, I enjoy working with children! I'm excited about the opportunity to be teaching and so excited for the next year.
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!).
