Shelley is an energetic and bright teacher as well an asset to Midvale Middle School and Canyons School District. Shelley, who is in her sixth year of teaching at Midvale Middle, has taken the lead to bring the prestigious International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme to the school. As Midvale’s IB coordinator, Shelley has been working tirelessly to prepare the school, staff, and faculty to host the academically rigorous program in a community with high numbers of students in poverty and who are English Language Learners. She has headed up staff training initiatives, penned necessary applications and worked closely with IB leaders to establish a firm foundation for the program. The IB Middle Years Programme, in pilot form, will be offered as a magnet program at Midvale beginning next fall. It will be the first of its kind offered in Salt Lake County, and only the fourth in Utah to service middle school students with an eye on a uniquely rigorous academic program and ultimately, an International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Shelley coordinated preparations for Midvale’s IB Middle Years Programme at the same time she earned National Board Certification, and is the first Utah educator to earn National Board Certification in physical education.

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!
