Jade Christiansen

Director of Online/At Risk Learning

My name is Jade Christiansen, and I am taking over as the Blended Learning Coordinator this year at UMA! I worked as the Viper Flight Director last year. I also worked  at American International School of Utah for 5 years as an Advisor, English teacher, Guitar teacher, and the Director of their online Learning Center program. I am very excited to bring this experience over and to help continue to make the Blended Learning program great! I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Sociology and I am currently working on a Master’s Degree in Education with an emphasis in Learning and Technology. I am very interested in online learning and believe that it can be very beneficial for students who are willing to work hard. I believe in guiding the students and helping them develop a sense of self-motivation while giving them the tools and support to be successful. I am looking forward to seeing where this program can go!
