BIOGRAPHY

Becki Love

6th Grade Teacher

I have spent most of my adult life as an educator in one way or another, first and foremost as a parent to my four beautiful children alongside my amazing husband, Aaron. While my children attended elementary school, I enjoyed numerous opportunities to participate in their education. I volunteered frequently in their classrooms and was also a "room mom”. I spent many hours aiding the teachers in instruction, preparing class materials, organizing class parties and activities, and choreographing for the school dance festival. 

I have also been an educator in more formal capacities. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.A. in Secondary Dance Education and taught dance in Granite School District for three years before starting my family. Since then, I have worked part-time at BYU, directing a children's folk dance camp every summer and as an adjunct instructor in the Dance Department. I teach prospective elementary and early childhood educators how to integrate dance with core curriculum. I also worked for three years at Pioneer High School for the Performing Arts in various capacities: an English teacher, an English tutor in the computer lab, a distance education mentor, and as the front desk attendant. Finally, I taught creative and folk dance to children ages 4-14 for ten years at our local community center in Lehi.

I feel like all of my varied experiences have led me to Franklin Discovery Academy and I am so excited to be a part of the team here! The school aligns closely with my values as an educator. I am particularly thrilled about the Engage! classes, as well as the focus on meaningful play and kinesthetic learning, parent and student choice, and mastery learning.
