Afterschool Program Staff

Coordinator/Director- Ms. Nathaly De La Torre
I've had the privilege of working at an Afterschool program throughout my years at the University of Utah, where I graduated from Human Dev. Fam. Studies with minors in Psychology and Health in 2014. A goal of mine was to open and run my own program someday. I continued working as a
Coordinator after graduation for SLCSD, until an opportunity to open and run my own program became a reality with Summit Academy in 2018. Working with kiddos and being able to teach and explore different subjects/projects is the best part of my job. My favorite subject we do would have to be Active Enrichment because students and teachers are able to get up and move, which is very much needed after a long day at school. Also, it's just fun to challenge or be challenged by the students, until realizing how much energy I lack in comparison.
A bit more about me on the personal side: I have a daughter, who has become the light of my life, 2 mini doxies- so totaling three children, and a husband. Some hobbies I enjoy are watching movies, traveling, picking up mini hobbies (photography, certain sports, sewing), BOXING and being Happy! I love what I do. It brings me so much joy hearing students say "I don't want to go home yet" or "pick me up later next time", meaning I'm doing my job right.
