District Announces New Principal for Albion Middle School

The Board of Education of Canyons School District is pleased to announce the selection of Joanne Ackerman as the new principal of Albion Middle School. Ackerman, who is Principal of West Jordan Middle School, was appointed Tuesday.

Ackerman, who assumes the Albion principalship in June, replaces Larry Odom, who this fall will become an Assistant Principal at Brighton High School.  

As with previous principal searches, Canyons School District initiated the hiring process by holding a town meeting at which parents and faculty were given the opportunity to share with the district the personal and professional characteristics they were looking for in the new principal. Using this feedback, the position description was drafted and the position opened for competitive hire.  

The District also asked the incoming PTSA president and an Albion teacher to participate in the initial candidate interviews.  The screening committee then forwarded three qualified candidates to Superintendent David Doty for a final decision.

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!
