As Canyons District teachers, parents and students start anew in the maiden days of January, these wise words of Nobel Peace Prize-winner Malala Yousafzai ring truer than ever: “One book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.”
At the outset of 2018, the Board of Education and Administration invite you to resolve to express appreciation to the teachers in Canyons District who are educating the next generation of community leaders, artists, technology whizzes and entrepreneurs. You can do this by submitting a nomination for the 2018 Canyons District Teacher of the Year.
Nominations are now being taken for this year’s Canyons District Teacher of the Year honor. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, Feb. 2. Per tradition, Canyons District recognizes a Teacher of the Year from every Canyons school for outstanding teaching practices, professionalism, and community involvement.
From that field, one overall Teacher of the Year is selected to represent the District in the state top-teacher competition and receives the 2018 CSD Apex Award for Teacher of the Year — the highest award given to teachers by the Canyons Board of Education.
Every school-based Teacher of the Year receives gifts and prizes donated by CSD’s generous business partners.
This year, the Board and Administration will announce one top teacher from the elementary, middle and high school levels. Those three will receive additional honors, which will be presented at an April 24 community celebration and announcement of our overall Canyons Teacher of the Year.
To nominate your favorite teacher for the top award, fill out the following form and return it to your school.
