Hi! My name is Ann Durrant. I grew up in the Holladay area. I have a tall daughter with blue eyes named Linnaea. I also have a large white cat with one blue and one green eye named Whitey. I enjoy cooking, gardening, genealogy, and enjoying nature. I LOVE to learn, especially about history and science.
In college, I studied cultural anthropology and creative writing. I worked at the Alta Club as a chef for 10 years making fancy things. When my daughter started school, I worked as a paraprofessional aide for 2nd-4th grades. This is when I discovered how much I enjoy working with children. At my last job, I wrote the menu and prepared fun, healthy snacks for the kids. I also worked with a Pre-K class as well as K-6th grades.
Being a kind, helpful and patient friend are important in being successful in life. I believe that there is something to be learned in every moment. I am excited to be at the wonderful Winner School!
