Hello everyone, my name is Madison Lewis! I’m a Dixie State and Western Governors alumni and recently received a Master’s degree in ELL. I’ve worked as a Title 1 aide and a 3rd grade teacher in Cedar City and in Salt Lake City. I am so excited to be back in St. George and to see what 2nd grade is all about! When I’m not at school I enjoy reading, drawing and eating cereal. I love all things Disney and outer space! My biggest dream is to visit all 6 Disney parks in the world! I am excited for the opportunity to be a part of the South Mesa Elementary family, to work with a great team and to meet amazing students!

Hi! I'm Jalene Bastian. I have been teaching for the past 18 years and still love watching little minds learn and grow. I have taught Kindergarten, Reading Recovery, OEK, and 2nd grade. I'm looking forward to being a part of South Mesa Elementary. When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids, being outdoors, cleaning, or reading. I look forward to meeting new teachers, students, and families as we work together to build a school of learners and leaders. Go Knights!

Howdy Friends! I am Ms. Hartman. I've had a blast in the classroom for the past 14 years working with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade kiddos. I have a Master's Degree in Education. In my free time, I spend as much time as possible enjoying the beauty of Southern Utah from a hiking trail or the seat of my little red kayak. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to continue building relationships with members of the South Mesa community and making many new friends along the way.
