Dear Wasatch Students and Families,

I am excited to write this introduction to you as the new principal of Wasatch Elementary. I am honored to lead a school with such hard-working students, dedicated staff, and a supportive community. I am very fortunate to be part of this school and support the students and families here.

I have worked in the Ogden School District professionally for 15 years. Previously, I have been a staff assistant, teacher, and instructional coach. I entered the teaching profession 15 years ago after being a staff assistant for seven years at OSD before that. My Bachelor’s degree is in Elementary Education with a concentration in English as a Second Language, and my Master’s degree is in Educational Administration. I am delighted to bring my educational skills and experience to Wasatch Elementary and to assist you in making your child’s learning experience successful.

On a personal note, I am from Ogden and have lived here all my life. My husband, Craig, and I have three children and five grandbabies. I love spending time with my family! We love traveling and going to Lagoon as a family. Additionally, I enjoy hiking, reading, and watching Weber State football.

I view education as a life-long process. I enjoy learning and sharing that knowledge with others, especially students. Every decision I make as an educator and principal revolves around what is best for my students. The relationship between families and school are vital to our success. I invite you to get involved in PTA, Community Council, and/or your child’s classroom. Your input is welcome! I look forward to getting to know you and to a successful school year.

Mrs. Wendi Malan
