Cindy Jahnsen 's Bio
Integration Specialist Director
My name is Cindy Jahnsen and I am the Integration Specialist here at AAA. I grew up in sunny southern CA and am an avid Disney fan and beach lover. My husband and four children moved to Utah five years ago and we love its variety and beauty.
I have a Master of Arts in Teaching, Elementary Education from Western Governors University. Although education has always been a huge priority for myself and my children, I always seem to gravitate back to the performing arts. Performing, creating and teaching is my happy place. Over the last 13 years, I have taught a combination of general music, choir, dance, piano, musical theater and recently, general education.
I come from a family of performers and artists and have been involved in the arts in many forms for as long as I can remember. I am a huge advocate for the arts and strongly believe in the BTS program within our school. Working side-by-side, the teachers and I create lesson plans that integrate components of music, art, movement and theater into everyday instruction of core subjects. This integration increases student engagement and retention, making learning fun and interesting!
I look forward to a wonderful school year!
