CSD Counselor Earns Top U. Honors

A shiny new plaque on Rich Landward’s office wall serves as recognition for his hard work. But the CSD Student Support Specialist insists that the honor isn’t just for him. Landward says he shares the honor – the Clinical Faculty of the Year Award from the University of Utah’s College of Social Work – with those around him in CSD who are dedicated to building up Care Coordination, an evidence-based initiative that links students and parents in Title I communities to mental health and other community services.
Landward, who this year supervised master-level social work interns at Copperview, East Midvale, Midvale and Sandy elementary schools as part of the Care Coordination program, was surprised with the award at a recognitions ceremony at the University of Utah. While he knew he had been nominated for the award, he says he “had no idea” he’d won.
Landward says at-school mental health services have the potential to boost student achievement.  If students have immediate access to services that can help them cope with, for example, mood disorders, trauma, depression, anger, or family disruptions, then it may positively affect how they perform in the classroom. It also has been shown to reduce behavioral issues.  
Karen Sterling, Director of the Office of Student Advocacy and Access, lauded Landward for his efforts.  “We are very excited for Rich and proud to have him on the Student Advocacy Team,” she said.

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!
