Dr. Rhode Begins Work as Interim Superintendent

Dr. Ginger Rhode, who played a major role in the launch of the new school district and the creation and implementation of the District’s academic plan, took the helm of Canyons School District on July 1, 2013.

The Canyons Board of Education appointed Dr. Rhode as Interim Superintendent to replace David S. Doty, who resigned to become the leader of a Utah-based education-reform firm.

Dr. Rhode has served as Canyons’ Deputy Superintendent for Student Achievement and Chief Academic Officer since November 2008. She has a Ph.D. in Special Education from Utah State University and is a widely published author of numerous books on behavior management, including “The Tough Kid Book,” which has received national recognition.

A former special education teacher and principal, Dr. Rhode has worked as Davis School District’s Director of Special Education, Director of Federal and State Programs and Coordinator of English as a Second Language Programs, and has extensive experience in school reform and improvement efforts. She has served as Special Education Coordinator and State and Federal Compliance Officer for the Utah State Office of Education and is an Adjunct Professor in the University of Utah’s Educational Psychology Department.

The Board’s Tuesday, April 23, 2013 vote to appoint Dr. Rhode as Interim Superintendent was unanimous. Dr. Rhode will serve as interim superintendent during the Board’s superintendent search, which is expected to be completed in March 2014.

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!
