Tana Angle

Taña is incredibly excited to be working at Ignite and especially in the Special Education Department. She is passionate about helping students and being an advocate for them. Her knowledge and understanding come from her own life experience of being in the trenches with her own special needs children. She knows that hard work, consistency and patience brings about great rewards. She loves learning about ways to encourage and inspire those whose path may look hard and challenging. Working with the students brings her joy because they are so full of love and hope. She and her husband, Rick, have been married for twenty glorious years and have amazingly strong, courageous and resilient children. Together they have two sons and two daughters. She is grateful for the knowledge she has acquired from being their mom and their biggest cheerleader. As a family they enjoy playing all types of games and having quiet evenings at home. Taña is a native of Utah and enjoys the various seasons but definitely prefers the warmth of the sun. She looks forward to another great year working with the amazing staff and students at Ignite Entrepreneurship Academy!
