Spanish Fork Jr. High School teachers are very committed to helping students achieve high levels of learning.  Each and every day teachers work with students towards achieving goals that lead to the highest levels of learning possible.  But, teachers at the Jr. High have other “hidden” talents, as well.  In November students were treated to a talent show assembly where teachers shared a variety of talents with the student body.
