You may have noticed we are going to have lots of new faces around Guadalupe School this year! As we expanded the school, we have also expanded our wonderful staff. So, this week, we are letting some of our new administrators, teachers, and staff members, tell you who they are in their own words. Meet our new team members!
Cassie Bingham, Volunteer Coordinator
I received my bachelor's degree in sociocultural anthropology with an emphasis in international development, through which I developed a passion for all worthy social causes. If you ever bump into me outside of work it will probably be at some obscure indie concert or in a contemporary art gallery. I have lived on 4 different continents, and in my spare time enjoy daydreaming about how I will increase that number.
Becky Bouvang, 5th Grade Teacher
I grew up in Georgia. However, I have lived in Utah since 1985. I have been teaching for 25 years. I love to travel, quilt, and read books. I am excited to teach fifth grade and be a part of this wonderful team.
Mary Draper, Development Director
I grew up in Utah where I received my B.S., Philosophy from the University of Utah and a Juris Doctorate from Brigham Young University Law School. I have11+ years of development (fundraising experience) and first began affiliating with Guadalupe School in the late 1980's as a Board member, and have loved the School ever since! The students, adult and youngsters, are terrific, the staff is inspiring, and our new building...WOW! : I love art ...looking at it, and making it, and some of the most fun I have had has been teaching art to kids at Boys and Girls Clubs! Also, I make a mean batch of brownies!
Danielle Lankford, Communications Specialist
My job is a dream because I get to write about such an amazing cause for a living! My passion for writing and activism is why I chose political science as my undergraduate major. I am also an active military spouse, and volunteer for a group called Pets Enriching Troops with my certified therapy dog. After four years stationed in England and developing an infatuation with all things British, my husband and I transferred to Utah this year.
Susan McGovern, 3rd Grade Teacher
I graduated from Metropolitan State College in Denver with a degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Early Childhood. I grew up in western New York State with my parents and two brothers and two sisters. I've taught kindergarten, 1st, second, and third grade. I'm very excited to be here at Guadalupe school, and ready to get to know everyone!
Audra Mulleneaux, Executive Assistant/ESL Specialist
My name is Audra Mulleneaux. Having moved to Salt Lake City 3 years ago, I'm originally from Minnesota. I have a BS in Communications from BYU-I and am currently working on an MA in TESL (online) through St. Cloud State University. I have been employed at Guadalupe School since December of 2014. I am thrilled to be here.
