Intern Mallory Bringhurst grew up in the Up With Kids! program, starting from the age of seven, and immediately found a home with her “second family” – a place where her overly-excited-and-super-loud personality was welcomed, encouraged, and cultivated until she turned into a true performer!
After graduating from Copper Hills High School, Mallory travelled with Up With Kids! as an assistant director on three different trips across the country and eventually found herself as a Special Education Teacher’s Aide at Kearns High School for three fantastic years. Both of these experiences proved to Mallory that her true passion in life is teaching. Mallory believes that “children can inspire you to believe in the unbelievable, wish for the impossible, and find love in all the small things in the world.”
After spending four years in sunny California as a Marine Corp wife and mother of two, she has finally come back home to Utah and been reunited with her Up With Kids! family. She is thrilled to be using the “teaching gene” passed down through numerous teacher family members.
