My Email: amber.gentry@washk12.org

Amber Gentry graduated from Southern Utah University with her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (Kindergarten-8th grade) with minors in Child Development and Reading. After graduating, she stayed at home to raise the five amazing children that would come into her family. When her youngest son was ready to go to first grade, so was she.

Mrs. Gentry grew up right here in sunny St. George. After her husband graduated from BYU Law School, they came right back home to raise their family. Their children have all gone to Sunset Elementary and enjoyed their amazing teachers and learning experiences.

Mrs. Gentry loves taking walks with her amazing husband, gardening, reading and collecting children's books, and going on hikes and bike rides with her family.

My name is Mrs. Kara Gunther and I am originally from Northern Michigan. I love the water, beaches, sunsets, reading, spending time outdoors and camping with my husband and daughter. 

I graduated from Dixie State University with an Elementary Education Degree in 2004 and began teaching First Grade at Sunset Elementary 3 months later. I continued my love of education and graduated from Southern Utah University in 2010 with a Master of Education Degree and Reading Endorsement. I have enjoyed teaching First Graders at Sunset Elementary so much that I’ve remained in the same grade and at the same school since I began teaching in 2004!!

Mrs. Montgomery’s favorite teacher was her Mother in Kindergarten and then again in Third Grade. She graduated High School in a tiny little town in the middle of nowhere with only 16 students in her class. Since then she has worked with children over the years in many different capacities and loved it. She has earned a Master’s in Elementary Education and is very excited to teach first grade!   

 Mrs. Montgomery has two children that attend Sunset Elementary and they enjoy it greatly. Volleyball is her favorite sport and she also likes to hike, swim, and spend time with family.
