Welcome to MNJHS Mrs. Bufton, 8th Grade Science Teacher

Mrs. Bufton MNJHS Science

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.
