Gavin has worked in education for the last 9 years: all at the middle school level. He's loved working with his students and helping them learn and achieve their best. Gavin spent 4 years teaching science at Mount Jordan MIddle School in Sandy, Utah and then returned to BYU to acquire a Masters degree in Educational Leadership. He spent the last 4 years at Frontier Middle School and has served as department chair, instructional coach, new teacher mentor and professional development facilitator. This last year he also taught an endorsement course through BYU focused on helping elementary teachers improve their science instruction. Gavin is excited to become a part of the Iron County School District and engage in the collaborative process to help all our students learn at high levels. Gavin is married and has one child and one due to arrive in June. He shared that many of his family vacations have brought them to Cedar City, and they love the area. He stated: "Working at Canyon View Middle School is a dream come true for me and my family as we are able to live in a place we love and become a part of the community we admire and respect."
