    Hi, my name is Paula Edmunds. I grew up in the Salt Lake Valley with my family of 1 sister and 3 brothers. I married my husband M. Klyn Edmunds in 1976 and started our adventure. We have six children, three boys and three girls. Our first two boys are miracle babies. Our oldest has served his country in the Marine Corp for the last eight years and is now currently based in Connecticut as a recruiter for the Marines. Our second son now lives with us in Roosevelt and manages the fueling station in Myton. We had the privilege of adopting our three girls when they were ages 4, 5, and 6. They have brought such joy to our lives. They are now married and are raising six of our seven grandchildren. Our last son we adopted at age 12 and has graduated from Westminster College in Salt Lake City on a Sterling Scholarship. We moved to Sanpete County in the year 1999 and that is where we raised our last five children.

     I worked for North Sanpete School District as a Paraprofessional, Substitute Teacher and in the Migrant Summer School for ten years. I decided to go back to college and pursue my education in Elementary Ed. I was a non-traditional student, being I was going back later in life. I loved learning and was very excited to teach children. I moved to Roosevelt in 2012 and started teaching at King's Peak Elementary where I have taught 3rd grade for the past three years.

     I am so excited to start working at Athenian eAcademy. I love their curriculum and what they have to offer the students. I just finished a week long training at Snow College this summer and have come back with a wealth of knowledge and information for my students. I can't wait for school to begin. I have a great love for children and believe that everyone can learn and deserve the chance to show their self worth and their own individual ability. Every student has a unique way of learning, as a teacher I feel it my responsibility and opportunity to find the way to help each individual student to grow and learn. I feel at Athenian eAcademy, through their program each student will have a wonderful opportunity to achieve to their highest ability.

    K - 3rd Grade Teacher

    Hi, my name is Linda Fors. I live in Spring City. I love camping, fishing, hunting and being outdoors. I also love to garden so I can freeze and bottle fruits and vegetables to last us through the winter and to share with friends and neighbors.

    I have been teaching for 20 years. I have A Child Development Associates, Montessori Certification in Early Childhood, and a BA in Early Childhood Education. I have a positive teaching style, dedication, and great compassion for children. My focus is on developmentally appropriate practices to aid in the growth of the whole child. I have learned about many different types of diversity in children and their families and how to provide to them skills, resources, and education.

    I believe that the classroom needs to provide a safe, healthy, nurturing environment where the children learn respect for self, others, and their environment, and to gain a helping community perspective.

    Every child is unique and diverse; I will respect their individual needs and celebrate their cultures. I believe children need to experience and explore every aspect of life that includes: science, history, geography, art, music, literacy, language, math, physical, health, gardening, culinary skills, and conflict and resolution. I will continue to learn and grow as a teacher for the children.

    My name is Richard Hawley. I am 37 years old and grew up in Central Valley. I am married and have five children, four girls and one boy.

    I graduated from South Sevier High School and then attended Snow College in Ephraim. After serving a two year mission for the LDS church, I returned and finished my Associate of Science degree at Snow College Richfield campus. I then attended Utah State University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. After graduating with my degree, I was hired by the Division of Juvenile Justice Services as a line-staff counselor at Wasatch Youth Center, a secure facility where I worked with delinquent adolescents. I ran treatment groups and assisted licensed professional counselors with the rehabilitation of these youth and their re-entry into society. While I was working on my degree in Psychology, I was particularly interested in child development and decided to pursue a Master's degree in Education and earn my teaching certificate. I began attending Weber State University and earned my license in 2011. I am in the process of completing my thesis and am set to graduate from Weber State in Spring 2017. I was hired by the Davis School District at Antelope Elmentary School to teach P.E. during the 2011-2012 school year. I continued to teach P.E. the following year and was asked by the administration to direct the schools Title 1 before/after school program. I wanted to get into the classroom and began looking for open positions within the Davis School District. I was hired to teach 5th grade at Eagle Bay Elementary. I also served as the schools assistant webmaster and was a lead advisor in the schools STEM club. I am excited about the opportunity to work for Athenian eAcademy and bring my experience and skills to help my students succeed.

    My personal interests include cycling, both road and mountain, skiing, snowboarding, camping, and motorcycles. I enjoy reading and serving in my church and community. I love being involved in the scouting program and earned my eagle scout award as a youth. I love my family and the support they give to me.

    As an educator at Athenian eAcademy, I will build the relationships and trust that are imparitive in order to create a learning environment that will help my students use the talents they have and value themselves and each other as unique individuals that have much to offer to their community and the world if they are willing to work for it.

    I’m Janie Hawley and I am so happy to be able to mentor at Richfield Campus.  I grew up far away in the distant lands of Pennsylvania and California. Both are as different from each other as they can possibly be, which might be why I am so easy going but have a deep love for history and facts. I have four daughters, one son and one amazing husband whom I am luck to work next door to!  I love being involved in drama productions and making costumes. I like being behind the scenes helping everyone work together to create something amazing! I really enjoy helping scholars make and reach their goals in class and seeing them succeed!.

     I was born in St George Utah a very long, long time ago on February 17th.  I was 7th of 8 children and called a “Miracle Baby” because my mother had to have open heart surgery while six months pregnant with me (which was unheard of back then). We both made it through and it made for a very close bond between my mother and myself for as long as she lived. 

    My Jr year of High School I went as a Rotary Exchange Student to the Philippines
