Melissa Dolan

Science Enrichment 4-5/ Math Enrichment k-3

Mrs. Dolan, after attending school at BYU, UVU and SUU graduated with a degree in Elementary Education and has worked at Gateway for 7 years.  Mrs. Dolan is an active teacher who loves to spend time outdoors with her family, usually on hikes throughout the state. Mrs. Dolan also loves POPCORN, this can be attributed to her upbringing in the cornfields of central Illinois.  We are lucky to have such an amazing teacher who knows that Gateway is, “a community of everyone doing their best.”

Keith Wilson : PE & Spanish, Middle School

Keith Wilson

PE & Spanish, Middle School

Mr. Wilson teaches Physical Education and Spanish in the middle-school environment.  Keith graduated from Southern Utah University with a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and P.E. and has been at Gateway for 6 years.  He would gladly accept your challenge to a game of H-O-R-S-E (did I mention he teaches PE and basically lives in the Gym). Not only is Mr. Wilson a wonderful teacher and athlete, he and his family also raise chickens and work hard on their farm in Parowan.  Mr. Wilson “loves how accepting Gateway is. This school serves everyone no matter who they are. This goes for staff and students alike.” Not only is he proud to teach at Gateway, we are proud to have him (and not just because he makes sure we all have fresh eggs)!

Sharyn Manley : Library

Sharyn Manley

Library

Mrs. Manley has worked at Gateway for 6 years and has been the Librarian for the past 4 years.  She graduated from Southern Utah University with a degree in Elementary Education. Not many people are aware of this interesting fact about our Librarian but she was an All-American Cheerleader and was a part of the San Diego Chargers cheer team!  Mrs. Manley brings this enthusiasm and passion into the library as she cheers on our students daily. They love their visits to the library where they read and learn from Gateway’s “Spirit-Squad Leader.” Sharyn is a great member of our team and is always positive and a joy to be around (even if we had to confiscate her pom-poms).
