The Nebo School Board of Education appointed Angela Youd as the Principal of Sage Creek Elementary in Nebo School District.
Ms. Youd earned her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Utah Valley University and her master’s degree in Education Administration from Southern Utah University.
For the past 11 years, Ms. Youd has worked in Nebo School District. She served as a facilitator at Spring Lake Elementary and as Dean of Students at Spring Canyon Middle School. She taught second grade at Maple Ridge, Sierra Bonita, and Brockbank Elementary Schools.
Ms. Youd was honored with the Crystal Apple Award in 2019. She previously taught piano lessons and coached cheer and dance teams. She has served the children in her community and church for over 12 years.
A colleague said, “As a leader, Angela is extremely organized and dedicated to her responsibilities. Her teachers, staff, parents, and students hold her in high esteem. Angela is a team player and exhibits commitment to the profession. She is reflective, kind, and caring and will truly be an effective administrator.”
Ms. Youd said, “I believe that school is a place where students should feel valued, trusted, and successful. In order for these things to happen the school environment needs to be safe, welcoming, and inviting to all who enter. Each staff member at the school holds a responsibility to help each individual feel respected and needed, and plays a vital role in making school a great place to be.”
When asked about her motto, Angela said, “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.”
Angela enjoys camping, boating, and snowboarding–mostly anything outside with my family. She is married to Derek, and they have three children.
