Tireless Public Schools Advocate Reinstated as Canyons Board President

Nancy Tingey, a three-term member of the Canyons Board of Education with more than 30 years of involvement in public schools, will serve another term as Board President. 

In a 7-0 vote on Tuesday, Jan. 19, the Board elected to have Tingey, the first woman to serve as the leader of the Board, to continue in her leadership post. Also by unanimous vote, the Board chose Amanda Oaks and Steve Wrigley to serve as Vice Presidents.

President Tingey was first elected to the Canyons Board of Education in 2012 to represent areas of Cottonwood Heights and Sandy, and the Town of Alta. A thoughtful, detail-oriented leader with deep roots in PTA and School Community Council involvement, her influence is felt beyond the District’s boundaries. She has served as President of the Utah School Boards Association and the association’s legislative liaison.  

On Thursday, President Tingey thanked her colleagues for their vote of confidence and support, and remarked, “I look forward to serving alongside all of you.”

Wrigley was first elected to the Canyons Board of Education in November 2010 to represent District 5 in Sandy. He has served multiple years on the Board’s leadership, and enjoyed a 37-year career in the human services field, serving as an administrator with the Utah Department of Human Services.

Oaks, the mother of five children attending Canyons District schools, joined the Board in January 2019, representing neighborhoods within Sandy and Draper. An accomplished musician, she holds a law degree from Brigham Young University.

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!
