Mrs. Koriane Maughan is a new eighth grade English teacher at Springville Junior High. She has also taught at Salem Hills High School and Lehi High school. She hopes this year she can help her students get excited about English.

The reason why Mrs. Maughan decided to teach is because she had a summer job as a dance teacher; she had so much fun teaching girls to dance that she realized she wanted to do it for a career. She decided to teach English because it was something she enjoyed at school.

According to Mrs. Maughan, the reason why she loves teaching is because she “laughs at work everyday because kids have such fun personalities.”  According to Jehni McNeil, an eighth grader at Springville Junior High, “Mrs. Maughan is very enthusiastic about everything we do.”

Outside of school Mrs. Maughan enjoys playing softball; she is even in a league. She also enjoys golf and dancing; she has been a dance teacher at Stars Studio in Salem and Dance Central in Springville.
