Apply Now: CSD Employees Fund ‘ACE’ Scholarships for Aspiring Teachers

CSD’s career educators are passing the torch to the next generation.

Through a new scholarship program made possible with donations from employees, Canyons School District hopes to encourage more of its educational support staff — from classroom aides to behavioral specialists — to consider a rewarding career in teaching.

Applications are being accepted now through March 29, 2024 for Aspiring Canyons Educator (ACE) Scholarships, which will provide up to $5,000 in annual tuition assistance for employees enrolled in a college education program. CSD’s high school seniors are eligible for the ACE scholarship, too.

“We have so many talented support professionals and students who are deeply connected to our schools. This scholarship supports our employees in growing professionally while also growing the ranks of our teacher workforce from within,” said Canyons Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins.

ACE scholarships, a joint effort of the Canyons Education Foundation and Human Resources Department, are a home-grown strategy for combatting Utah’s teacher shortage.

“Canyons District manages to recruit top teachers from around the country,” said Foundation Officer Denise Haycock. “But we have paraeducators already in our classrooms and other employees who have a knack for working with students who absolutely love their jobs. With support and encouragement, we are hoping more of them will consider getting a full teaching credential. We want these employees to be able to continue working with us while they pursue a teaching degree.”

To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be a current, non-licensed CSD employee enrolled in a college-level education prep program.
  • Be a CSD high school senior with proof of admission to a college or university and plans to study education.

Eligibility details and instructions for applying for an ACE Scholarship can be found online.

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!
