We are pleased to announce the transfer selection of Jennifer Eggleston as the new principal at Panorama Elementary School. Jennifer is the current principal at Coral Canyon Elementary School. Jennifer will replace Steve Gregoire on April 1, 2020, as he moves to the new South Mesa Elementary School opening this coming August.

Jennifer grew up in southwest Kansas, 'home on the range', on a farm. She knows how to round up chickens, milk cows, crawl through a barbed wire fence, and many other farm activities. She had a fabulous childhood growing up! Jennifer moved to Hurricane, Utah, her sophomore year and graduated from Hurricane High School. She then graduated with the 1st Elementary Education cohort from Dixie State University. Jennifer received her masters from Southern Utah University, as well as her administrative license. She holds ESL, Gifted & Talented, Reading, and Technology endorsements.

In Jennifer's 3rd grade writing journal, she wrote, "When I grow up, I want to be a teacher." While the medical field tempted her greatly, she decided upon a teaching degree as she was then a current single mom of 2 young children. She credits choosing education as one of the greatest decisions of her life.

Jennifer had her 16th first day of school this past August. Jennifer began her teaching career in 2004 at Coral Cliffs Elementary as a 5th grade teacher. She moved to Coral Canyon Elementary as a 5th grade teacher when it opened in 2006. She was the Treasures Coach for 1 year, Title I Site Coordinator for 1.5 years, then became the principal of Coral Canyon Elementary on 12-12-12. What an easy date to remember!

Jennifer did not stay a single mom forever. She married Mike almost 7 years ago, and inherited a new daughter. They also added their own little girl 5 years ago. Jennifer is a very proud grandma to Nevaeh and Major. She loves spending time with her family.

Jennifer will miss her Coral Canyon family of 14 years, but is excited as she looks forward to this new adventure with the Panorama Elementary community!

Please join us in welcoming Jennifer to her new assignment!
