Clay Craig 

I graduated from Utah Community College 

This is my 16th year teaching 3rd and 4th grades.

 I grew up in Santaquin.  My wife Angie is a school teacher at Santaquin School. My son Justin is going into elementary education. My son Jake is on a mission in Nebraska. My son Ryan is a sophomore and loves tennis. My daughter Katelyn is in 7th grade and is a fabulous clogger.

My favorite things to do outside of school include: Spend time with my family. I love to make pottery on my potters wheel and read.

Teaching is one of the greatest joys in my life. I love watching students when the light comes on. I can't imagine doing anything else.

Ben Gowans 

I graduated from UVU

 I grew up in SLC.

I have been married for 19 years.

My wife teaches school at Payson High.

My oldest child Zak is a Senior at Payson High.

My Son Ethan is an 8th grader.

My daughter is a 7th grader.

We love sitting in the living room and just talking.

My favorite things to do outside of school include: canyoneering, riding my road bike (bicycle not motorcycle), and eating ice cream.

I like to build stuff for my home and yard.

Jeannie Roundy

I Graduated from Utah State University.

This is my 19th year teaching

I grew up in Santaquin (not on the east side)! ha!

I am a mother of 6, 3 boys and 3 girls. Age ranging from 3-15.. only 240 more days until I have a driver.  Yes, I am counting down!

I spend all my extra time driving around... that is driving to baseball, basketball, softball, dance, clogging, gymnastics and rodeos.

I enjoy anything that involves a lot of kids, chaos, and confusion. We spend our extra weekends camping and cattle ranching. 

Joni Cheney

I graduated from BYU (attended U of U for three years, then BYU.)

This is my first year of full time teaching. I have been a long-term sub for the past three years.

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah with six brothers. I have no sisters and have always wanted a little sister for Christmas under my Christmas tree.

I Have four terrific children (two girls and two boys).I am going to be a grandmother in November.  I adore my husband. He has been a great support to me as I have spent the last three years relicensing and trying to get hired. I don’t know what I would do without him. He spent many hours helping me to get my classroom ready for the first day of school.

I love to vacation with my family and visit historical sites. Quilting is my release from stress  and I do yoga just about every morning. If I don’t, then I feel like the tin man who needs to be oiled.

My philosophy in life is . . . “Nurture a forgiving heart.”
