Connect Canyons Podcast, Episode 1: A Conversation with New Superintendent Dr. Rick Robins

Joining Canyons School District in the midst of a pandemic that has strained the systems we rely on to keep us healthy, learning and economically stable isn’t how Dr. Rick Robins imagined his first few weeks as Superintendent.

But with every challenge, come fresh opportunities, believes Robins — opportunities to restore connections with the communities our schools serve, renew the promise of education, and reimagine what we teach, how we teach and why. What will fall 2020 look like as Canyons reopens classrooms and builds upon its online learning options? What health and safety precautions and cleaning measures are in place, and what might the changes of today mean for the students of tomorrow?

We recently sat down with Dr. Robins to explore these, and other topics, for the inaugural episode of Connect Canyons, a podcast about learning and teaching in Utah’s newest and fifth-largest school district. Learning is about making connections, and as the name of this podcast suggests, we are here to invite our listeners to connect and learn with us.

In the coming months, we’ll get up close and personal with some of the “connection-makers” — personalities, programs and prospects — that make our schools click. We’ll meet national experts, too.

Staying connected to your child’s school is always important, but especially in a health crisis. In a busy world where we’re all scrambling to keep up with the latest news and developments, we hope this podcast offers another way to keep track of what’s important to our employees and the students, families, and patrons we serve. 

You can subscribe to the podcast using your favorite podcatcher, or visit our Connect Canyons website where you’ll find current and recent episodes and a list of future topics we’ll be exploring. Coming up soon: episodes exploring equity in schools and an in-depth look at Canyons District’s new Peer Court.

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!
