Mr. Trauntvein has dedicated his life as a teacher, counselor, and leader to the service of our children in the community. We greatly appreciate all that he has done for JSD!
Leonard Trauntvein went on an LDS mission to Denmark from May 1957 to December 1959. After returning, he graduated from the College of Eastern Utah (Carbon College) in May of 1962. Then Leonard moved to Provo with his young family.
He graduated from BYU May 1966, where he majored in psychology and minored in social studies. He also earned his Masters Degree in Educational Administration in the fall of 1980 from BYU. He received Educational Specialist Degree from BYU two years later.
After graduating, he accepted a teaching job at Juab High School. Leonard first taught one eighth grade US History, one world history, two eleventh grade US History and two classes of Economics. After two years, the eighth grade US History was changed to eleventh grade US History.
Leonard was then moved into the counseling office. He still taught one class of economics and one class of psychology. Leonard became the first principal of the Juab Middle School in 1980. He was there until the seventh month of the seventh year in 1987 and was transferred to the high school as the principal. He was selected as the 1988 Outstanding Rural Utah Secondary Principal by the Utah Rural Schools Association
After seven years as the principal, in 1994, Leonard was asked to do some district work and accepted the district position. Three things that needed to be done: one, bring all district buildings up to ADA standards; two, create emergency preparedness manuals for each teacher and each building; three, bring the Comprehensive Guidance Program into the district.
After three years, the work was completed. Leonard decided to retire. He retired in 1997. After about five years, Leonard was asked to come back and teach history and he did that for two more years.
