My name is Jeff Hall and I am a teacher gone tech-y. I?m a licensed educator with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I have a technology endorsement and have graduated the E-mints program, which helps teachers integrate technology into the class in a way that will give students a more in depth learning experience. I have also participated in the iSchool Initiative. Beside all that, I love to find fun ways to engage students and make learning fun, mainly with the use of technology. The Granite Association has recognized me for Gifted Children because of my use of technology in the classroom. I have also worked as a technology specialist. I feel that the use of technology will enhance learning, increase a teacher?s productivity, as well as make learning a lot more fun for students. If used in the correct way it can transform students? behaviors and attitudes toward learning. Technology is the future so by having students use it now, it will prepare them for the upcoming careers that will be available for them.!

Hello Scholar Academy families, my name is Katy Rawlins and I am excited to be teaching 5th and 6th grade this year! I enjoy traveling, running and the outdoors. I really enjoy teaching science and literature. I can’t wait to share my love of learning with your student. I grew up in the Cache Valley area and graduated from Logan High School in 2003. After high school I attended college at Utah State University, where I met my late husband. I graduated with a dual major in Sociology and Elementary Education in 2011. After college, I taught for the Cache County School District as a classroom teacher in several different grade levels until, the beginning of this past summer. I lost my husband to cancer back in 2016 and, decided that it was time for a change for my son and I. My 5-year-old son who will be attending Scholar this year, so I am a Scholar parent as well. We relocated to Tooele over the summer and, I couldn’t be more excited about this new journey. Teaching is my passion. There is nothing better than watching students learn and grow. I look forward to getting to know you during a fun and exciting year!
