“Mrs. Fallon understands my 11-year old daughter. She “gets” her. We have had many, many moments of affirmation, understanding, and excellent teaching with Mrs. Fallon this year. Thank you!!”
“Mrs. Fallon is the kind of teacher who sees each student as an individual. She has high expectations, but shows incredible love for each student. She pushes student to do their best, but is warm and encouraging as they figure out their process.”
Favorite Interaction with a Student — On the last day of school, I received a handwritten letter from a student who HATED writing and who had struggled with cursive. This letter was written during class time on the last day of school. It was written in his neatest cursive. It was a page-and-a-half long; it detailed everything that I meant to him and how I how I had inspired him throughout that school year.
Curriculum Highlight — I genuinely love to teach grammar, literature and history. I also genuinely enjoy teaching math. More than anything, I love the rich class discussions that come throughout all areas of the curriculum as we apply 4-R’ing process while relating the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Hobbies — I love reading (especially on a beach or on the side of the pool); I love photography, hiking, snowshoeing, and road biking.
Education — Bachelor of Science, Elementary Education, BYU.
What Do You Love About 6th Grade — I love the wonderful and thoughtful discussions I can have with my 11-12 year-olds! I learn so much from them!
Approach to Teaching — I love being able to teach the fullness of truth, not just secular truth, and certainly not secular opinion. I love having the opportunity to use the Spirit as I guide my students through researching, reasoning, relating and recording in their hearts and mind. I love being able to see students develop the ability of allowing the Spirit to guide their own reasoning and relating throughout all areas of the curriculum and throughout their own life experiences.
“No matter what else others remember about me, the 3 things I hope to leave in the hearts and minds of those who have entered my classroom are as follows:
- I know that Jesus Christ and God the Father live and love me and each one of us.
- The sincere love I have for every student, who has been under my stewardship, never ends. Every individual student has a permanent place in my heart.
- My sincere hope is that every student has left my classroom feeling loved.”
— Mrs. Fallon
A Little Bit About the Fallon Family
I met Sean Fallon (from Southern California) while we were both working in the Provo MTC cafeteria. It was a second on-call job for me… and clearly, I had just enough hours each week to meet the man whom I would marry! Sean and I both graduated from BYU.
I have 3 children: Thomas (almost 22), who served in the Denver South, Colorado Mission. He is currently working as the tuxedo manager at the Men’s Wearhouse in Sandy.
Kiersten (almost 19) graduated from American Heritage School in 2017. She is currently working full-time and preparing to attend UVU in the fall of 2018.
Gentry (almost 10) is in 4th grade at American Heritage School. Gentry LOVES math, art, science and geography! She, like her two siblings, LOVES art.
All 3 of my children are gifted artists who developed their individual talents under the direction of truly gifted art teachers, including Mrs. Parker and Mrs. Culver. (My husband and I are awesome at drawing stick figures!)
