Park View Elementary had a GAINS District Dance Specialist visit  last week.  GAINS stands for Growing Arts In Nebo Schools.  Specialists visit elementary schools throughout the District and work with teachers and students on using different kinds of arts integration. Arts Integration employs the arts as a teaching tool to enhance learning of the core curriculum.  Taylor will be working with Dance Integration this school year.   5th grade students danced about the ORDER OF OPERATIONS with a little help from our hula hoops.  By adding movement to the meaning of the different operations, students will better remember this important sequence. 6th grade students created dancing EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPHICS to share a message about Ancient Egypt.   3rd-4th grade will be visiting with the Dance Specialist in a couple of weeks as well.  Wait until then to hear more!

Another new teacher who’s excited, not only to be a Lion, but to teach the students of Payson High is Joe Kelly. “I wanted to become a teacher because I enjoy working with young people and making a difference.” Mr. Kelly has been married to his lovely wife for 34 years now, he has five children and 6 grandchildren. The first thing he noticed when he came to Payson High, was how nice everybody was to him!

 

He knows Martial Arts and loves cooking in his dutch oven. He teaches Psychology and has always been fascinated with human behaviors and why people do the things they do.

Ms. Kron started teaching this year & is excited to be at Payson High and share her love for teaching Spanish/English to the students. Ms. Kron’s (soon to be Mrs. Noll’s) aspirations led her to our school, and now we have a new amazing Spanish/ English teacher and she got her dream job. When asked what she liked about Payson, she responded, “I love everything about Payson High School so far! I have felt welcomed (by our awesome principal & assistant principals!) since my first job interview, and every day just gets better and better. Faculty and students alike - everyone is so kind and willing to lend a helping hand!” Hopefully students and faculty keep impressing Ms. Kron throughout the year and years to come.

Welcome to MNJHS Mrs. Brown, 7th/8th Grade Math Teacher

Mt Nebo Junior High School News - Mon, 09/18/2017 - 10:48am

I was born in Payson, but I moved to Albuquerque New Mexico and then to Evanston, Wyoming. I moved back to Payson in time for Junior High and then moved to Elk Ridge during my high school years. I graduated from Payson High School and then went on to BYU where I got a degree in accounting. I worked in the accounting department of a grocery chain store until I had my first child. After having 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls, I began subbing when they all entered school. I started tutoring other kids at the same time. I tutored reading and some science, but mostly I tutored math from kindergarten up to college algebra and some basic calculus. While I was subbing I also worked at SHHS giving their AP tests, SAT tests, and ACT tests. I really enjoyed helping kids get their GED so they could graduate or pass other tests like the ASVAB.  I currently live in Genola with my husband and I love it there. My oldest son is married with a little girl and one on the way. My oldest daughter teaches English at Mountain View High School. My second daughter is doing elementary education at UVU and my youngest son just graduated and is on a mission in Jamaica.
