Computer Lab Specialist

Ms. D’Anjou grew up near Seattle, WA, where all of her family still lives. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from Eastern Washington University. She has lived on both sides of Washington State, and loved the weather in Eastern Washington, which prompted her move. She moved to Utah in 2013 for the weather and has been in Tooele since 2014, after meeting her wonderful husband. They have been married since 2015 and have a dog. She has held various administrative positions over the past ten years. This is a new adventure that Ms. D’Anjou is excited to be on. With a mom and sister who teach, it seems natural that working in a school environment would be something she would do. She believes that children really are the future and wants to pour into them as much as she can. When she is not working, she spends her time outdoors, or at the church, where she serves in the children and youth ministries, or wherever else they need her.
