Mrs. Wood's


Nita Wood

Welcome to Mrs. Wood's website.  I am really looking forward to a new year with new students.  I really enjoy bringing students to a new level of understanding in math.   As you begin the year remember that in order to be successful you need to believe in yourself and I will do my part to make learning a safe and nurturing experience. I want to share a little about myself so you can get to know your teacher as we begin this wonderful journey.

   I grew up in Salt Lake CityUtah. I am married with 2 kids, one girl and one boy. Chloe is 9 and very smart.  She enjoys reading, solving new problems in math and other subjects, playing the piano and dancing.  Caleb is 6 who starts fist grade next year.  He loves to ride his bike and scooter and loves to play with friends.

   I graduated from the Utah State University with a BS in Psychology, math and health education. I taught for a year after graduation and my husband and I moved around a lot and swapped careers.  I worked for the National Cancer Institute, SARCOM, and then was able to be a stay at home mom.  I looked forward to the day I could return to teaching.

   My passion in life is Fitness,  I teach fitness classes and the local gym.  I teach yoga, kickboxing, cycling.  I love to run marathons and triathlons. I love baseball -- it truly is my favorite pass time!

   I love a variety of activities including: hiking, reading books, playing games with my kids, and organizing my house.  I love to go new places and see new things. 

Remember to enjoy learning and make it a lifelong experience.
