Mrs. Corrin Owens is our new Red Devil counselor.  Before coming to Springville High, Owens was a counselor for three years at Mapleton Jr. High.  Owens wants to help every student reach their maximum potential.

Owens reflected on the rewards of being a counselor, “I think seeing students grow and change is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a counselor; watching a student overcome and succeed,” said Owens.

Owens’ husband is Chris and they have four boys; one of them attends SHS and her youngest just started Kindergarten. She is a huge University of Utah fan and she attends all of their football games. She likes boating, camping and reading.

The beginning of the school year is a time to welcome in new students and teachers. Springville is excited to welcome Ms. Madeline Vest into the English Department.

Vest worked at Polaris High School in Alpine School District last year. However, teaching English isn’t her most unusual job--Vest worked as a mixologist at Sodalicious.

“My vision for my classroom at Springville High is that it is a place where all my students feel comfortable, supported, and capable of success,” said Vest.

Vest has a lot of passions and hobbies besides teaching English. She also enjoys playing the piano, hiking, eating yummy food, reading, and spending time with her family.

Springville High School’s New Rock'n Guitar Teacher

Springville High has begun and we have welcomed a lot of students and new teachers, we are excited to welcome Mr. Jake Coleman to the Music Department. This is the beginning of Coleman’s third year of public school teaching and his 16th year of music teaching. Coleman taught at Lone Peak High School in Highland, Utah, and at Rockwell Charter High school.  Coleman teaches Guitar.  

Teaching Guitar isn’t the most unusual job Coleman has ever had.  Coleman’s worked at a telemarketing company, he disliked working at a desk and loathes pushing someone to buy a product he isn’t sure he would even buy.

He has been married nearly ten years to his wife Erica. They have two beautiful sons and a daughter due soon.  One of Coleman’s hobbies is the weather--he likes bad weather, it’s good weather to him. He also enjoys fishing, hunting, and wilderness survival.

One of Coleman’s teaching philosophies is, “Average teachers tell, good teachers show, and excellent teachers inspire.”

“Watching students realize they love something they just understood, or learned to do. This brings them confidence, and motivates them to move forward,” said Coleman.

He wishes every student would give their absolute best effort in high school and take the challenging classes that everyone says are difficult.  Coleman says that they will help you develop in so many ways.

Camille Callister is one of our new English teachers here at Springville High.  This is her first year teaching; however, last year she was an intern at Spanish Fork High.  Callister teaches sophomores and juniors, English 10 and 11.

“My vision is to create a classroom where my students feel safe, in an atmosphere that allows them to learn at the highest levels possible,” said Callister.

Callister is truly a Red Devil, “I graduated from Springville High School in 1981, and it feels good to be "home" again!”

Her most rewarding teaching experiences is when she helps to create good relationships with her students.

On a personal note, she has five children, ages 18 - 31, three grandchildren, and a little Shih Tzu named Rosie.  She enjoys reading, writing, gardening, art, and music.

The most unusual job she had was delivering newspapers the summer before her internship.  She started delivering at 2 a.m. and her route was in the farmlands around Salem.  It was dark and the houses were sometimes few and far between, so it was a little eerie at times.

Springville High School is overjoyed to welcome our newest Biology teacher Mrs. Lori Caras. Although Biology is not the only class Caras has taken on at SHS, she also teaches AP Biology, Medical Anatomy & Physiology, and Biotechnology.

Caras has taught for the past 22 years at a large variety of schools teaching many different subjects. She taught Anatomy and Mammalogy labs at BYU for three years prior. She also taught at Springville Junior High, Shoreline Community College in Seattle, Woodville High School in the Seattle area, and was a graduate teaching assistant in Zoology at Brigham Young University.

“I want kids to leave my class with a renewed sense of curiosity, to be inspired to want to learn more and have the tools necessary to evaluate the world and their place in it,” said Caras.

Caras has expressed that she feels rewarded to have everyday interactions with students and to inspire them. She likes hearing about past students of hers that have sought careers in science since taking her class. She enjoys teaching and sincerely cares about her students.

She is happily married to her husband Tony. She has children and grandchildren that she loves spending time with. She enjoys watching sports, especially the Giants and 49ers. She likes reading and watching movies. She is passionate about riding motorcycles, despite the fact that she sold her own Harley.

She previously taught English in Taiwan despite the fact that she didn’t speak Chinese and the students didn’t speak English. Even with that issue in the way, they managed to get along and have a great experience.
