Welcome Mr. Lines

I love science, especially anything that has to do with nature. I love to hike, camp, and bike. In my younger days I was always skateboarding and snowboarding. I chose to be a teacher after having a short career as a exploration geologist, for multiple reasons, but most importantly because I want to help students see how fun science can be.

Welcome Ms. Scott

I have been teaching for 14 years in Nebo School District but this is my first year at Diamond Fork Jr High.  Teaching is a challenging and rewarding field to be in and I love it! I am passionate about reading and writing and love to see a child's eyes light up when they discover a good book. I love to call Utah Valley my home.  I graduated from BYU-Idaho, UVU, and received my Masters from U of U (insert gasp here)! I love to travel and my hobbies include playing the piano, sewing, pottery, collecting books, and playing handbells with Bells on Temple Square.

Welcome Ms. Millet

This is my first year working at Diamond Fork Jr. High and I am thrilled to be here! I am currently a graduate student at the U of U working to earn a Master's degree in School Counseling and I will graduate in April 2019. Some of my favorite things to do are hiking, baking, and playing board games. I was able to have several adventures this summer but the one that I enjoyed the most was attending the Shakespeare Festival down in Cedar City. I am so excited to get to know everyone at DFJHS this year!

Welcome Mr. Wood

I've enjoyed teaching for 31 years in Nebo School District at both Payson Jr and  at Springville High. I decided retirement would be more fun exploring science with Diamondback students so... I'm back! I like to rack up the miles road cycling, relax on a mountain stream fly fishing, gaze at the heavens through my telescope, and explore the nature of our great outdoors.

Welcome Ms. Neumiller

My name is Hailey Neumiller and I will be teaching 9th grade biology and 7th grade science this year! I just graduated from BYU in April and I am so excited to share my passion for the study of life! I am originally from Star, Idaho so I grew up playing outside with my 3 younger sisters and farming potatoes (just kidding, we could barely keep our garden alive). I love animals and my family had 2 cats, a chihuahua and a rabbit, as well as periodic squirrels - long story. I learned how to ski when I was 2 years old and I haven't missed a season since.

Welcome to Diamond Fork Ms. Hessing!

My name is Melissa Hessing. I am born and raised in Utah, and graduated from Brigham Young University. I love history, but I'm not very good at math, unless I'm doubling fractions in a recipe for Texas Sheet Cake. Being outdoors is my happy place, skiing in winter, boating in summer, and whatever else can get me outside is what I always want to be doing.  love traveling, especially camping, and going on any new adventure possible, especially if I get to drag my husband and daughter around.
