All in for learning
For any 7th, 8th, or 9th grade boy and girl wanting to join the golf team, there is a meeting right after school (2:45) this Thursday, August 23rd in Mr. Bingham's room (P3). It doesn't matter if you play another sport right now, come out for the golf team. If you can't come to the meeting this Thursday, please talk to Mr. Bingham to get the details and to sign up.
Who: ALL Diamond Fork Jr 7th Graders
When: Monday August 20th, 8-10:45 am
What: Students will be visiting each of their classes, becoming familiar with the school and how to open their locker (it's tricky!). Students will attend an assembly to introduce some of our clubs and activities as well as receive a T-shirt! We are excited and looking forward to the big day.
I am excited to join Diamond Fork Junior High. This is my 12th year teaching and cannot wait to teach 8th grade science. I spent my early life in Oregon, where I was raised and ended up in Utah to attend BYU (I really just wanted better snow). I received my education from BYU, UVSC, and SUU. I continue to better my understanding of what I teach and still consider myself a student.
My name is Shawn Rogers. I am teaching US History and I am a first year teacher. I am from Utah, I lived in Spanish Fork until about 8th grade, and then moved to Lehi where I graduated High School. I then went on to Utah State University. I love to make videos and play guitar. I got married in January 2018 at my wife's family farm in a barn. Teaching is something I have wanted to do since I was 16 and I have never thought twice about it. I am very excited to be a part of the Diamond Fork team!
My name is Lexie Gatherum and I am so excited to be a part of DFJHS! I am originally from Cedar City and I graduated from Brigham Young University. I love to stay active by going swimming and hiking. I completed my first Spartan race this summer and look forward to completing more next year. I love to cook and bake. That is one of the many reasons I decided to become a FACS teacher. And I am excited to announce that after October 13th, instead of Miss Gatherum you can call me Mrs. Harr;) I love teaching and can’t wait for an awesome school year!
Sarah Insalaco Olsen has been playing every stringed instrument she could get a hold of since the age of 10. Her teachers at Diamond Fork Junior High, Spanish Fork Junior High, and Spanish Fork High School were understanding enough to let her switch instruments almost every year, and her passion for music grew. She pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Commercial Music at Snow College where she played multiple instruments in multiple ensembles while also writing music for these ensembles as well as for theater, game, and film projects.
Hello! My name is Mrs. Barazoto and I am excited to be at Diamond Fork Jr. this year! I teach 8th grade English and (obviously) love reading and writing and a good debate as well. I love Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Suzanne Collins and J.K. Rowling and I'm currently reading Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series. I'll read any good book you give me! When I'm not at school I love adventuring-- rock climbing, hiking, swimming, anything outside and active. I went to Disneyland for the first time this summer, spent a week on the beach and hiked all over southern Utah.
