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.

Shanna Daniels one of our new English teachers here at Springville High School. Daniels has 16 years of teaching experience.  Previously she taught at Spanish Fork Middle, Payson Middle, and Mt. Nebo Jr. High.

Daniels vision for teaching is for there to be plenty of laughter and class discussions. Daniels wants students to be able to find something to smile about during class.

Daniels most rewarding experiences are ones when past students are seen around town and they are productive, happy adults.

“When you teach junior high students, that's always in question, because they are generally not fit to be out in public,” said Daniels in jest.

Daniels loves cats. Daniels has three cats named Bruce, Jorge, and Marvin.  Daniels would love for anyone who wants to see pictures of her cats to come stop by her room.

“Some people call me the crazy cat lady like it's a bad thing.  Only it turns out that those people are WRONG!” said Daniels.

Darwin Deming, is our new multi-science teacher who loves his family. He wants to not only teach, but to also help students gain lifelong skills in science.

Deming teaches Astronomy, Geology, Environmental Science, and Physics with Technology. Deming has 11 years of teaching experience. Previously Deming taught at Union Middle School in Sandy, and at Mount Nebo Jr. High in Payson.

Deming’s teaching vision is, “It is my hope to help students gain the lifelong skills that are taught in a science class, such as critical thinking, problem solving, etc.  Additionally, I want to provide extracurricular opportunities for students that they otherwise wouldn't get in a typical classroom routine,” said Deming.

Deming reflected on student success, “To see students understand concepts that are difficult for them to comprehend is by far the most rewarding aspect of teaching.  The moment a student says, "Oh, I get it!" is a major victory,” said Deming.

Deming also loves to talk about his family, “I am married to Kiara, an outstanding woman who is a wonderful wife and mother.”  They have three children Aurora (6), Savannah (4), and Talmage (1). 

“We enjoy watching movies together as a family, having picnics, and playing on the playground.  I also enjoy beekeeping, and the worst sting I've had has been on my eyelid,” said Deming.

Deming’s most unusual job didn’t last long.  “I took a job for a guy that wanted to design online courses for high school students to get credits for a GED.  He wanted me to work in his basement on his computers.  Awkwardly, his family would also be downstairs in their pajamas and occasionally left dirty dishes around the computer I was assigned to work at.  Needless to say, that job didn't last long,” said Deming.
