The Learner Powers are an important part of Building Learning Capacity. The Learner Powers are Reflect, Question, Connect, Think, Be Self Aware, Wonder and Be Determined.
The Learning Process is another essential learning strategy that is intentionally taught to enable learners to proactively advance their own learning, problem find and problem solve creatively and face their changing future with confidence. The Learning Process develops learners 'Meaning Making' capacity and ability to think.

Riverview’s learning philosophy rests on the four vision principles - Building Learning Capacity, Collaborating, Making Meaning and Break Through. The focus on developing learners’ capacity to thrive in tricky situations - knowing what to do when they don’t know what to do - is valued highly. Teachers explicitly teach learners strategies to get out of ‘I’m stuck’ situations. Being stuck is celebrated and harnessed as an opportunity to build each individual’s learning capacity. We have learner powers that are integrated into all learning. The Learner Powers are an important part of Building Learning Capacity and are Reflect, Question, Connect, Think, Be Self Aware, Wonder and Be Determined.

Hi, My name is Doni Bufton and I am so excited to be a new 8th Grade Science teacher at Mnjhs. If I was asked to describe my self in one word, it would be passionate. I am passionate about my family. My husband and I have raised 4 wonderful children here in Payson. We also have 3 grandsons and hope for more. I am passionate about the outdoors. Our family loves camping, hunting, and riding our side-by-side as often as possible. I have been passionate about Boy Scouting, in which I spent 21 years in several different positions. I am a recipient of the Silver Beaver Award. I am Passionate about the City of Payson. Although, I grew up in Santaquin (which I love), my husband and I have lived here our whole married lives and I currently serve on the Board of Adjustments. Lastly, I am passionate about teaching students. I love learning myself and creating learning opportunities for my students which will inspire and enlighten their minds so they will some day become successful contributors in our community. I spend many hours in classes and workshops to constantly improve my teaching craft. I have earned 2 college degrees in Drafting and Design Technology and Elementary Education. I am currently working on my secondary science and math license. I am looking forward to working with such a great team of science teachers here at Mnjhs and I am also looking forward to meeting many new parents and students. This will be such a great year.
