Mickey Stinson

English Instructor

I am Mickey Anne Stinson. I am a girl from Idaho who fell in love with a boy from Utah. I have lived in Orem since 2010.  I moved here after graduating from Idaho State University with a degree in English. Most recently I have finished my master’s degree in Secondary Education English and am dual endorsed in Special Education from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah.  This is my 2nd year teaching. I love being a teacher. Being able to share my love of reading and writing is my dream job. Teaching young people that English can be fun is my perfect day. I am not here to change the world, but I might just help change a student’s view of themselves and the world around them.  Reading and writing can open up entire new worlds to students. There is an idea in Growth Mindset that states, " Our flaws are just a to-do list of things to improve". This is my personal educational philosophy that we each keep practicing until we get it right. 

MY HOBBIES:  singing, knitting and reading.
