Congratulations Mrs. Kemari Rawlings for being named ALA’s May Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Rawlings started her educational studies in 1987 at Brigham Young University.  In 1988, she served a 2-year mission for the LDS church in Japan. When Kemari returned from her mission, she transferred to Utah Valley University on a singing scholarship.

She attended UVU for 2 years, majoring in Broadcast Journalism.  During that time, she worked for the Orem Geneva Times, where she covered high school sports. And, in 2018, Mrs. Rawlings received her Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education from Western Governors University.

Kemari started working for the Nebo School District in 1999 as a Special Education Para-Professional.  She joined the staff at ALA in 2009 and has taught behavior team, high school transition, self-contained Science, Language Arts, and Math, and developed the school’s Study Skills program.  She is currently the High School and Jr. High self-contained special education teacher.

Just before coming to ALA, Mrs. Rawlings took time off teaching to record a solo album in Nashville called, “A Deeper Red”.  The proceeds from the album went to help children with autism in Utah & Mexico.

In her spare time, Kemari loves performing with her band, Deep Red Dirt. She also enjoys camping, golfing, and riding horses with her family.
