Trishna Saavedra is excited to be joining the Early Light Academy team as a 3rd grade teacher!
Trishna is from a border town named Laredo in the state of Texas where she was proud to be raised by both Caucasion and Mexican parents. Because of her family and the location she was brought up in, Trishna was privileged to have learned Spanish fluently along with rich cultural experiences. Trishna always loves to share these with her students every year.
Mrs. Saavedra received her B.A. in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University with a minor in Physical Education. She later earned two endorsements in World Languages and Spanish. She is currently working on a M.A. in Educational Leadership.
Her professional experiences in education include teaching in all of the K-6 grades, including Spanish Dual Immersion. She later joined the administration team at Monticello Academy as their Instructional Coach and Curriculum Director, followed by the Assistant Principal at Ascent Academy.
On her free time, Trishna enjoys dancing salsa and bachata with her husband, yard work, jumping on the trampoline and playing pranks on her 3 kids.
