Midvale Student Advances to National Essay Contest

Midvale Middle School eighth-grader and student essayist Timothy Hui has been selected to represent Utah at the National Do the Write Thing essay contest – and to have his essay about ending youth violence entered into the Library of Congress. The Do the Write Thing Challenge offers seventh- and eighth-grade students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives and write essays proposing prevention tactics to break the cycle of violence in their homes, schools and neighborhoods. The national challenge is administered locally through the Utah Board of Juvenile Justice, which selects one boy and one girl to represent Utah at the national competition.

Hui, his teacher Jennifer Romney, and his parents will travel to the national competition July 20-14, 2013. He received a complementary airfare and hotel stay, and received a $500 donation to a Utah Educational Savings Plan account.

Canyons has four other students receiving state honors for their essays. They are:

  • National Finalist: Tyler Hill, Crescent View Middle School. Teacher: Jenna Fitch.
  • State Finalists: Mason Edwards and Abby Hall, Crescent View; Chandler Wakefield, Midvale Middle.

Canyons students submitted 613 of the 1,707 essays submitted statewide. Participating teachers include Romney and Fitch, as well as Kimberly Carter, Krista Dodds, Scott Christensen, and Whitney Lee of Crescent View Middle School.

See Hui talk to KUTV’s Cristina Flores about his essay and his ideas on how to reduce bullying in schools.

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!
