Epic Day Assistant

Epic Teacher Aide – Aspen

My name is Denya Crockett, but you can call me Miss Denya.  I grew-up in Payson, Utah. I have wanted to be a teacher ever since I was a little girl.  In preschool I remember my mom being called by the teacher because I was not sharing in the playhouse.  We were playing school so naturally I was the teacher.

I attended Southern Utah University and graduated with my degree in

Elementary Education with a specialty in Child Development.  After that, my husband went on adventures with the Army so i stayed home with our six kids.  My children are almost all grown-up, so this gives me the opportunity to be back in the classroom teaching.   

As Nelson Mandella said, “ Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.  Children are our future. Distance Ed is such a remarkable program to be part of. Parent, teacher and child all working together.

If you miss the bus you are responsible for your student’s transportation. DO NOT stop the bus if it is pulling out and you are late. If the bus is moving you have missed it and need to transport your students to the location. If they miss the bus one direction they can still ride the bus back.   More info
