Lesa Mecham

First Grade

I love kids! This is probably because I’m a kid at heart and I had a wonderful childhood; growing up in Alpine, attending school in Alpine and American Fork, and doing all the fun things that kids did then and some still do today.

I also love learning and have had many amazing teachers help me along the path to becoming a teacher myself. I feel that every child has the ability to learn and succeed if given the right combination of love, attention, confidence, fun and instruction.

I enjoy living in Alpine surrounded by great friends and beautiful surroundings. My husband and I have 4 amazing children and a wonderful son-in-law. My family is the joy of my life and spending time together is what I look forward to. We enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, sports, backyard family-friendly competitions and any activity that takes us outside or especially into the mountains.

I graduated from Brigham Young University and then taught 2nd and 3rd grade before our first daughter was born. Now that our twins have graduated from high school, I look forward to returning to the classroom, as well as the opportunity to teach and learn from wonderful coworkers, students and parents at Lincoln Academy. “
