Athlos Academy of Utah announced today that long-term veteran teacher Stacy Tonozzi will take the reigns as Assistant Principal starting August 2023.
Mrs. Tonozzi is an award-winning fourth-grade teacher at Athlos Academy of Utah. She is known for creating fun and engaging hands-on classroom activities, including science experiments and “outside the box” activities that provide students with opportunities to think critically and creatively, which support the Prepared Mind Pillar at Athlos.
“Mrs. Tonozzi goes out of her way to make sure every student’s needs are met,” said one of her colleagues.
Mrs. Tonozzi has a varied educational background and has acquired many experiences over her last sixteen years of teaching. She has taught in special education, intervention, traditional and community college classrooms. In addition, she has coached summer programs to help students explore, build, and innovate within environmental sciences. Mrs. Tonozzi advised student-led projects during these summer programs to create ideas to better tomorrow’s problems.
Mrs. Tonozzi’s favorite quote is, “If you do nothing, nothing happens. So, explore now, create for tomorrow, and innovate for the future!
Mrs. Tonozzi’s favorite character trait is optimism. “Optimism is my most powerful tool. I can truly find the best of things out of each day to help make tomorrow better,” she said. “I strive for positivity and thrive on optimism. Optimism is an attitude and a choice. It involves context and focus. I am committed to finding things I can contribute to, work on, and improve.”
Mrs. Tonozzi plans to bring her many years of experience in the classroom to her new role as Assistant Principal, creating an exceptional educational experience for staff, students and families at Athlos Academy.
