On Monday, February 24, students had the opportunity to listen to Mrs. Litchfield talk about her career in Elementary Education as part of Springville High’s monthly Window on the Workplace lunch seminar series. Mrs. Litchfield has taught as a 5th grade teacher for the past four years and is currently a computer specialist for first grade to sixth grade at Cedar Bridge Elementary in the Alpine School District. She earned her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education at Utah Valley University and worked an internship at Park Elementary School in Spanish Fork, Utah.
Mr. Lee Litchfield, her husband, said, “She really enjoys having autonomy over her classroom; it allows her to have control over the classroom in what she teaches.”
For anyone wanting to pursue a career in Elementary Education, Litchfield gives some advice, “There are always surprises about the job. Like surprised by how much time is used for preparing. Watch out for that,” said Litchfield.
If you are interested in working an internship, see Mr. Lee Litchfield in the Springville High Counseling Center.
