Students and teachers at Payson High School love to work hard but they also love to play hard.  Throughout the 2017-2018 school year, students and teachers will be featured each week working hard or playing hard by using the hashtag #workhardplayhard.

Over the summer, faculty and staff at PHS have been working hard to get ready for the new school year.  But which educators found time to have a little fun too?  

Can you guess where and who these hard working/fun loving teachers are?  Be sure to check Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to guess and for more #workhardplayhard moments:

Meet 2nd Grade Teacher, Ms. Barlow!!

Taylor Elementary News - Mon, 08/14/2017 - 7:50pm

Hello Tigers! I am ecstatic to join this wonderful school and community. My original stomping grounds are Kaysville, Utah, but after going to Brigham Young University and becoming acquainted with the Nebo District I fell in love with the area, the wonderful people and decided to stick around. This past April I graduated from BYU in Elementary Education. My last semester was spent on a study abroad in Jerusalem. Back when I was in the second grade I wrote on an "All About Me" sheet that I wanted to be a teacher - now I am fulfilling that dream by teaching in the second grade! Some of my passions include reading, singing, traveling, exploring nature, laughing, and eating lots and lots of ice cream. I love teaching, but the best part is working with the inspiring, creative little people who fill the classroom.

Meet 6th Grade Teacher, Mr. Daggett

My name is Rob Daggett. I'm looking forward to teaching 6th grade at Taylor Elementary this year. I have been teaching for 10 years. However, I have never taught sixth grade. All of my experience is with junior high and high school. So this will be a new and exciting experience for me. My family and I have just moved to Utah from blazing hot Phoenix, Arizona. Just can't get enough of the beautiful weather up here in Utah. I'm the proud parent of three pretty cool kids, 2 girls (Jalynn 19, Katelyn 10) and a boy (Beau 16). I have a beautiful wife. Her name is Jennifer. I love all types of sports. My favorite is basketball. Just can't get enough of it. I can't wait for the school year to get started and enjoy teaching and learning together!
