Mrs. Mary Gilmore

Mary Gilmore received a Master of Education in Elementary Education from Utah State University and her Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education with a Minor in Music. Serving a mission to England was a highlight of her life. After teaching Elementary school for seven years (two years in second grade and five years in fifth grade), she stayed home to raise her family. She and her husband Rob have six children, and they love to play games together as well share their love of music with others. Mary has enjoyed teaching piano lessons for over 20 years. She loves the outdoors and watching her children play soccer. She worked at Oakcrest girls camp as a counselor, assistant director, and director and loved it! She has a strong desire to help each student feel successful and loved in a safe learning environment. She is thrilled to be a sixth-grade teacher at American Heritage in Salt Lake City and to be able to share her love for learning along with her testimony of Jesus Christ.
