Canyon Spotlight: Mrs. Jesperson

Mrs. Jesperson (formerly Miss Sederholm) is another one of our amazing third grade teachers! Here are some facts you may or may not have known about her:

I grew up in a small town in Arkansas

I am the third child of six children. I have two older brothers, two younger brothers, and a little sister. My parents and two youngest siblings live in Denmark (where she also recently got married).

I will graduate from BYU this upcoming June. This is my first year teaching!

My favorite food is either homemade chicken noodle soup, macaroni and cheese, or bbq chicken.

Danika Nuttall teaches third grade. When you ask her students to talk about what they like about their teacher, their eyes light up. They say things like, "she really cares about us," "she is kind and sweet," "she is the best math teacher ever." She takes the time to care for and help each individual student. When they are struggling, she works with them until the problem is solved. She is an amazing and generous teacher. She is very dedicated.
