I was born in Madison, WI to parents who were both choral musicians. My father taught in the public school system for 33 years; my mother taught in the private sector. As a child I loved exploring the outdoors and found every possible reason to be outside. My first few jobs were as a parks and recreation lifeguard and camp counselor.

When I graduated from High School I went directly on to college. I graduated from Luther College in Decorah, IA with a BA in Religion and Philosophy and minor in Music. From there, I went on to receive my Masters of Divinity from Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN. Following commencement, I married and moved to New England where I lived for 10 years prior to moving to Utah. 
My two children are 13 and 15 years old and were students at Sunset in the early years of our life here in Utah. Currently, I serve part time as STEM LAB coordinator.

I am originally from Salt Lake City and consider Saint George my second home. I went through the education program at Dixie State University, and have really enjoyed working in the education field. I have always loved the world of technology, and try to share my excitement of it with all of our students. I have been working in the computer lab for a long time and still love it. It is fun to watch our students learn to use the computers, and work on the fun programs here at Sunset.

Hello, my name is Angie Koch, I grew up in Southern California, moved to Saint George and graduated from Dixie State University with a degree in Elementary Education with an ESL endorsement in 2015. Since graduating I have been a substitute teacher and I'm honored to now be the i-Ready teacher. I'm excited to share this program with the students and their families in third, fourth, and fifth grade. When I’m not at school I enjoy reading and learning about new things, playing tennis with my fiancé, spending time with family, and I love refinishing furniture and crafting. I am looking forward to this great year ahead of us and the experiences we will share.
