Cindy Olinghouse is so happy to be a new member to the John Hancock Charter School faculty!! I was born an raised in the Heber Valley area. My parents moved us to the state of Idaho when I was entering Jr. High. Sadly, my parents divorced and my mom and me moved back to the Salt Lake area. I returned to Idaho to graduate with my friends, but came right back to Utah because it will always be home. I worked in the Park City area in hotel & accommodations arena in my early 20's. I met my husband in Park City, but he lived in Utah County, I moved to the area, where we started our family and I have resided for the past 26 years. I was at a cross roads in my life and that's when I decided to return to college to pursue my degree in elementary education, because becoming a teacher has always been a desire of mine. I graduated from UVU in 2013 with my Bachelor Degree in the Science of Elementary Education. I have 2 grown children. My son, Justin, is 24 years old and is attending UVU, in the aviation program. Recently, gave me my 2nd grandchild, a boy, named Maverick, only 1 month old today. My daughter, Samantha is 21, living and working in Utah County, hoping to start school to get her CNA soon. Sam gave me my first grand-daughter 3 yrs ago, Kameron. Light of my LIFE!! I have a 10 yr. old Lab., named Tank. I love the summer outdoors; camping and ATV. I cross-stitch, my Favorite book is The Journey of Edward Turlane, my favorite color is purple, love Italian food, especially the pasta. I want to travel to Italy soon. I am so looking forward to being the new 7th grade teacher here at John Hancock. Can't wait for an exceptional year, getting to know my students, their parents, the faculty and staff, the rountine. IT'S GOING TO BE A GREAT YEAR!!!!
