Mrs. Worley grew up in Salt Lake City and was blessed with many experiences and opportunities that nurtured her love of piano accompanying, her love of teaching, and her love of country. She is amazed and thrilled to have found a position at Heritage Academy that combines all three!
Mrs. Worley attended Brigham Young University as a Kimball Scholar and graduated in Elementary Education, finishing her student teaching a month before her first child was born. She spent the next few decades as a stay-at-home and homeschooling mother of (eventually) six children, living near Seattle, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco.
In 2016, she moved to Arizona with her husband and two youngest children who attend Heritage Academy and sing in choir. She feels very fond of Arizona and considers herself an “Arizona girl,” while still believing that her family’s move would have been worth it if only to give her children the chance to be taught and mentored at Heritage Academy.
Mrs. Worley is grateful every day for the privilege of supporting the outstanding Gateway choirs at the piano, assisting Mrs. Albretsen in the classroom, and enriching scholars’ lives with uplifting and fun music. She especially enjoys supporting the mission of Heritage Academy with spectacular patriotic music that deepens scholars’ appreciation for the founding principles and values of our American nation.
When she’s not at the piano, Mrs. Worley enjoys dancing in ballet class and spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren.
