We are so excited to have new teachers at Valley View Middle School this year! 

Meet Shay Townsend, our new Language Arts teacher!

I will be teaching Resource English 6/7. I am competitive and love watching my students work hard and make progress in their academics. I enjoy spending time with my children and watching them perform their various activities. I enjoy exercise. I teach both High Fitness and Surge-Fit at 5am, it gives me energy, and makes me a better person throughout the day. I played Division 1 softball at UVU as a pitcher, and was the pitching coach at Maple Mountain High School for 5 years. My husband and I are competitive and love to compete against each other. My favorite place in the world is Fish Lake, I enjoy going there every summer. I enjoy going to concerts and love a variety of music from country to classic rock, and everything in between. My favorite quote and life motto is, "There may be people with more talent than you, but there is no excuse for someone to work harder than you!" - Derek Jeter.
