2013 Teacher of the Year: Brookwood’s Monica Rotermund

Monica Rotermund is magical at teaching mathematics. Her sixth-graders at Brookwood Elementary score at nearly 100 percent proficient in math testing. Additionally, as a math team lead, she helps set the pace for math education at her school.

“Students leave her class with excellent math skills and an increased self-confidence,” states a letter nominating Rotermund for the school’s Teacher of the Year award. “Students thrive in Monica’s class because of her passion for teaching and compassion for students.”

Rotermund’s professionalism, caring and expertise were lauded Tuesday, April 16, when she was named the 2013 Canyons District Teacher of the Year, a recognition of the Board of Education that includes $1,000 from the Canyons School District Education Foundation. The Board also honored all 45 school Teachers of the Year, and recognized two Teacher of the Year runners up – Millie Rogers of Jordan Valley School and Rachel Hardy of Jordan High – at a special reception and recognitions event.

Rotermund is known as a visionary and talented educator who makes learning fun. The 26-year teaching veteran is supportive and encouraging of her students, and brings to the classroom the enthusiasm of a new teacher.

“She is one of the most positive people I’ve ever met,” Brookwood principal Julie Mootz said. “The kids absolutely adore her.”

Rotermund and each of the school-level Teachers of the Year were nominated by colleagues, parents, school leaders, and students. Each Teacher of the Year was surprised with the recognition a few weeks ago, and received a prize package, including a dinner at La Caille, Real Salt Lake tickets, and a Teacher of the Year banner for the school. All Canyons Teachers of the Year also will be recognized at halftime at the May 4 Real Salt Lake game at Rio Tinto Stadium. Discount tickets are available to the Canyons community.

Rotermund will represent Canyons School District in the Utah Teacher of the Year contest this fall, where she will compete for additional prizes and recognition. The Canyons Teacher of the Year program is supported by La Caille, Real Salt Lake, Sandy City, and the Canyons School District Education Foundation.

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

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!
