NSMS Tech Trainer

My name is Angela Thompson, and while I am originally from Sanpete County, I grew up all over, moving so frequently that adjusting to a new locale became just a regular part of life.  While attending a U.S. DoDDs high school in the Republic of Panama, I had many opportunities to develop a passion for technology with access to a wide array of technologies largely unavailable to the typical U.S. teenager in the 1990s. I became an IT specialist with  qualifications including a degree in IT Management; A+, Network+, and Project+ certifications; and detailed knowledge of a wide variety of business operations as well as software & hardware platforms. I love to sing, play several instruments, am a voracious reader, and enjoy being actively involved in community civics. My parents’ semi-retirement paved the way for me to return to my hometown, and my family has greatly enjoyed being here. I have a fabulous husband, 6 wonderful children (3 at home), and 1 grandchild (with one on the way). I am thrilled to join the NS Technology Team and look forward to this new adventure!

I graduated from Snow College and have 12 years experience as a Special Ed TA working with students ranging in age from pre-school to high school.

In my free time I enjoy playing piano, gardening, camping, and designing homes.




Attendance Secretary at NSHS

My name is Tori Hansen and I live in Fountain Green. I graduated from Murray High School and Snow College. I married Clint Hansen and we have one daughter, Bailee. I am a city girl that never dreamed she would end up making her life in the country. I love living here and Sanpete has become home. I also love any chance I can get to spend time in the big city.  I enjoy traveling, being outdoors, camping, reading, and being with my family.  I am a concert junkie and never pass up an opportunity for live music and friends. I worked at Fountain Green Elementary for 16 years and am very excited to be back at North Sanpete at the high school.

A little about Melanie Stubbs: I'm not sure what I can say that everyone doesn't already know...I have three amazing kids and four even more amazing grandchildren.  I love just about everything outdoors; skiing, biking, hiking, fishing every chance I get.  I still teach the occasional ski lesson on weekends for Eagle Point.  I've loved being a sub driver and am excited to have this opportunity.

I’m blessed to be married to my sweetheart and to live in this beautiful valley that I love so dearly. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my family, being outside, playing sports, reading, and lovin' on my nieces and nephews.
