It is bitter sweet for the Copperview Cougars as Shawn Walker and Deidre Walbeck (current Assistant Principals) will be greatly missed. A heartfelt congrats to them both for their new appointments as CSD Principals; Shawn Walker – Principal for Sandy Elementary, Deidre Walbeck – Principal for Oakdale Elementary.
Introducing Cassie Kapes!
Hello Copperview Community! I am so excited to get to know you and your family as an assistant principal at Copperview elementary. I have been living in Utah and working for Canyons School district for 7 years as an Achievement Coach and District Specialist in Dual Language Immersion, English Language Development, English Language Arts. During my decade of teaching prior to moving to Utah, I taught Spanish and English in Montana, English in Chile, and supervised a variety of after school and community programs. Along with advocating for student learning and teaching, I am passionate about skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and cooking. Copperview was my first coaching assignment in Canyons School District and I am looking forward to returning this fall!

Hi everyone! I’m Carolee Mackay, I was born and raised in Provo and knew I always wanted to be a teacher. I was in the classroom for 7 years teaching 1st and 2nd grades and also doing the English side of Dual Immersion. I’ve been an Achievement Coach for the last 5 years.
I have a 4 month old puppy named Ollie and we like to go on walks every day and spend time outside. I also like to travel, read, and garden. I’m so excited to come to Copperview and get to know this wonderful community!
