Malala Yousafzai, the youngest-ever Nobel Prize laureate, once said, “Let us remember: One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world.” While just one teacher in CSD is selected as the overall District Teacher of the Year, one teacher from every CSD school is selected each year to be recognized for their hard work and dedication. From that bunch, CSD picks six semifinalists who are observed in their classrooms by curriculum specialists. Three are then chosen to advance to a final interview with the Office of School Performance, which works with principals to supervise all of CSD's schools.
The winning teachers at all schools have been surprised with a banner, poster, and a gift basket full of donated goodies collected by the Canyons Education Foundation. We invite the CSD community to the Tuesday, April 25 announcement of our District Teacher of the Year. A reception to honor our teachers is at 7 p.m. and we will start the ceremony at 7:30 p.m. The event will be at the Canyons Administration Building-East, 9361 S. 300 East. The Canyons Education Foundation will give the winner at $1,000 cash prize. First runner-up will receive $750 and second runner-up will receive $500.
