Connect Canyons Podcast

Connect Canyons • A Podcast Powered by Canyons School District

To have a breakthrough idea is to see connections that are not normally seen. Teachers ignite a love of learning within their students by connecting on a personal level. In a world where all knowledge is a mouse-click away, tomorrow’s leaders will be those who are able to see how it all connects. Put simply, learning is about making connections. So, we invite you to learn and connect with us. This is a show about what we teach in Canyons District, how we teach, and why. We’ll get up close and personal with some of the people who make our schools great: students, teachers, principals, parents, and more. We’ll meet national experts, too. And we’ll spotlight the “connection makers” — personalities, programs and prospects — we find compelling and inspiring.
