Cherie Wilson, Principal

Shauna Worthington, Asst. Principal

I am thrilled to be your new principal this year at Foothills! I have been in education for 19 years, two of which were assistant principal at Silver Crest, Eastlake, Falcon Ridge, and Riverside Elementary. I have taught Kindergarten, 2nd, and 3rd grades, as well as been a district literacy specialist. I love to eat Mexican food! I enjoy running, reading, and learning new things! I love to spend time with my family! We love to travel, watch movies, and play card games together. I’m delighted to be joining you as a Foothills Mustang this coming year! I’ve worked in Jordan School District for thirteen years and had a great year last year as the assistant principal at Daybreak and Blackridge Elementary schools. I’ve taught third and fifth grades, helped teachers with literacy instruction, and mentored new teachers. When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, enjoying the great outdoors, and writing. I look forward to getting to know you and working together!


Again, we look forward to seeing you soon on our first day back!


Cherie Wilson and Shauna Worthington
