I am so thrilled to be a part of Canyon Rim Academy and the First Grade team! My name is Vanessa Tendick and I gained my education from Westminster College with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology. Learning and teaching are my passions in life and I am ecstatic about sharing these with the students that enter the classroom. I am married to my best friend, Evan, and we have two amazing children: our son James and our daughter Sylvia. When we have spare time we love to spend it with family and friends. We love living in Utah and enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring the great outdoors. I also enjoy anything that involves allowing me to create something- drawing, painting, cooking and writing. I look forward to another exciting year at Canyon Rim Academy!
