Canyons’ New Strategic Plan Serves As District’s ‘North Star’
Move over Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a new popularizer of science in town. Sean Thorpe, an instructional coach at Canyons School District, has found a way to introduce not just students, but entire school communities, to the wonders of science with his Science Festivals. Not to be confused with science fairs, where students enter projects and compete for prizes, science festivals are open to students of all ages, from toddlers to grandparents. Thorpe recently staged one at Oak Hollow Elementary, which drew hundreds of students and their siblings and parents — all eager to try their hands at dissecting a squid, launching fizz rockets, or cracking open geodes.

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added: “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
