Submitted by breanna.partridge on Mon, 09/09/2019 - 12:16

My name is Melanie Kunz. I was born and raised in Lehi, Utah. I have been married to my husband, Travis Kunz for 23 years and have six children. 

  • Quincy (21) 
  • William (19) 
  • Paden (18) 
  • Ferron (15) 
  • Alexis (12) 
  • BryceAnn (10) 

    We have lived in Santaquin for the past 15 years with our two horses, Moo and Scooter. 


    I received my Bachelor of Arts Interdisciplinary Studies K-8 from Western Governors University. I completed my student teaching at Brookside Elementary in Springville, Utah, working in a third-grade classroom. I completed my ESL endorsement last year, and I am currently working on my Masters in Elementary reading instruction with Grand Canyon University.


    In addition to teaching, I have enjoyed working with children throughout my life and in many different spheres of influence. I have served for over ten years in the Boy Scouts of America organization, 4-H, and other community and religious youth groups.  


    Among my hobbies are sewing, homemaking, bow hunting, reading, playing the piano/organ, and running.
