Mrs. Rhonda Spivey

Dean of Cadets

I received my Bachelor’s degree from Weber State University in History and theatre and graduated from Utah State University with a Master’s Degree in Administrative Leadership.  For the 35 years I have been education I have spent 34 years in the class room teaching social studies.

 Last year I moved from teaching to being the Dean of UMA to expand my leadership skills in administration.  For the last 20 years, I have been interested in school improvement.  With that I have been a Lead mentor in several schools working with new teachers.  I am trained as a school accreditation lead evaluator with AdvancEd and have worked with them for several years.  I have training in writing assessments, school improvement, mentoring new teachers and Professional Learning Communities.

I have been married for over 25 years and have raised my family in the Herriman, Utah area.  I enjoy reading, sewing and camping for hobbies.

I look forward to watching our school grow and improve as each year passes. And to see our cadets also grow in confidence as they acquire knowledge and leadership skills by being involved in our military culture.
