Melissa Morris


​I started teaching at Juab Middle school teaching 6th grade in 2001. I then moved to Park Valley to teach 4th-6th grade in 2003. In 2014 I became Head teacher at Park Valley. I taught grades K-6 and took on the administration role as well. In 2019 I went back to school to get my master degree in Administration from USU. In 2020, I accepted the position of teacher 1/2 day at Park Valley grades 3rd-6th and being a principal for the three western schools. Currently I am a full time principal for all three western schools- Snowville, Park Valley and Grouse Creek. I believe that every child can learn at high levels and success is achievable through high functioning, cohesive teams. Students are capable of anything and need to dream BIG! We as educators can assist them in their journey. At Park Valley I feel grateful to work with teachers and staff who care about each and every child. The staff is committed to helping each child learn and grow mentally and emotionally. I have had some of the best experiences of my educational career at this school. I love to spend time with my husband and two kids, cook, and craft. I feel blessed to have to opportunity to work with and serve the community of Park Valley- The best kept secret!

I am Sally Pugsley and I work for the Box Elder School District at the Park Valley School.   This will be my 10th year at the school. I started as the cook and for the last few years, I have been working in the IVC lab with the 9th and 10th graders.   I love being with the students and this year I will be with younger students. Some of which will be my grandkids.  I also work as an intervention specialist with those students who need a little help with reading.   I love the programs that they give us to use to help those who struggle a little bit.  I love to see the progress they can make.  I love the atmosphere at our school.  I work with some amazing people and kids.  I have lived in Park Valley for 38 years and raised my family here.  I am married to Wayne Pugsley and we have 4 sons and 3 daughters-in-law who all live really close to us.  We have 12 grandkids 7 girls and 5 boys. We are truly blessed to live in this Valley and have our family so close.  I am looking forward to a new school year and all that it brings.

3rd- 6th Teacher

I started teaching in 2018 in Las Vegas, NV where I taught 3rd grade and Kindergarten. I moved to Park Valley in 2021 to teach in the middle room. I love my husband, dog, and cat. We love going on walks together and getting to know new people. It has been an honor and privilege to get to know the community members in Park Valley. This year, I will continue teaching in the middle room as well as running CLAW time which is an intervention time to help students increase their reading skills. I love the students and teaching them to utilize skills that will help them have a better life.

Tiffany Eddington


Hi My name is Tiffany Eddington and I have been working at Park Valley School for the past 6+ years.  I grew up in Park Valley and also went to that school, so I have that advantage, where I just get it.  My family and I lived in Alaska for a short time where my oldest child attended a small school like Park Valley school, so that also helps in this setting as well.

I have many hobbies, that include:  anything to do with crafts, anything to do with the medical field, and my family and I also enjoy going packing into places with our horses and mule.  Our most recent place was the Wind Rivers in Wyoming, where we went 10 miles in.  What a fun journey. 

I enjoy watching the kids learn and grow each day.  Or to see their eyes light up when they learn a new concept.  My favorite subject is science because I love to see the discoveries they make and the questions they solve or the new questions they come up with after they have solved another.

Debra Summers

K-2nd Teacher

I was born in Brigham City but grew up and attended school in the South Ogden area. I have lived in San Diego, Kauai and Pensacola, but have always considered northern Utah home. I have three adult children and three adorable grandchildren. I attained my Elementary Education and Special Education licenses through Weber State University and later acquired a Master’s degree specializing in Curriculum and Instruction. I taught both 1st and 3rd grades over a span of 16 years and have spent the last year servicing Kindergarten through third grade students who have special education needs. 

I enjoy traveling, art and perusing antique/thrift stores for vintage collectibles and glassware. As often as I am able, I fly to Kentucky to spend time with my daughter and three grandchildren. 

I am greatly excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Park Valley School community. It seems a perfect fit for this season in my teaching career. I look forward to getting to know the families within the school community and having the privilege of teaching your children.
