Hi, My name is Doni Bufton and I am so excited to be a new 8th Grade Science teacher at Mnjhs. If I was asked to describe my self in one word, it would be passionate. I am passionate about my family. My husband and I have raised 4 wonderful children here in Payson. We also have 3 grandsons and hope for more. I am passionate about the outdoors. Our family loves camping, hunting, and riding our side-by-side as often as possible. I have been passionate about Boy Scouting, in which I spent 21 years in several different positions. I am a recipient of the Silver Beaver Award. I am Passionate about the City of Payson. Although, I grew up in Santaquin (which I love), my husband and I have lived here our whole married lives and I currently serve on the Board of Adjustments. Lastly, I am passionate about teaching students. I love learning myself and creating learning opportunities for my students which will inspire and enlighten their minds so they will some day become successful contributors in our community. I spend many hours in classes and workshops to constantly improve my teaching craft. I have earned 2 college degrees in Drafting and Design Technology and Elementary Education. I am currently working on my secondary science and math license. I am looking forward to working with such a great team of science teachers here at Mnjhs and I am also looking forward to meeting many new parents and students. This will be such a great year.
