She earned a Master’s of Education and her Educational Leadership License from Southern Utah University, and is currently working toward her Master’s in Restorative Practices through the International Institute of Restorative Practices.

Mrs. Mecham lives in the Heber Valley with her husband and has grown children who attended WCSD schools. Regarding her experience within the District, Mrs. Mecham says, “Having grown up in the Heber Valley and attending school here, I know what a great school district we have, and I am honored to be a part of it. Wasatch County School District values every student and every employee of the district. They allow each of us to pull on our strengths and work on our weaknesses. They expect us to excel and they do their best to put the supports in place to help us do so.”

    Mrs. Mecham’s Educational Philosophy:
    “As an educator, I believe that it is essential to hold high expectations for students, both academically and behaviorally. I believe that it is essential to hold high expectations for ourselves in order to ensure that we help our students achieve those high expectations, no matter their struggle. I believe educators are champions for their students. When a student says, ‘I can’t do this’ with love in their eyes, their voice, and their actions, the educator responds, ‘Yes you can, and I will show you how.’ Education is about teaching students and learning from them as well.”
