Episode 40: What’s an ESP, and Why Should You Consider a Career as One?

Everett Perry has been with Canyons District before it officially began in 2009. He was the 23rd employee hired by the fledgling school district, which has blossomed since becoming the first new District in Utah in nearly a century. As a Human Resources Administrator, Perry’s job now involves hiring ESPs and helping to enhance their work experiences. In this episode of the Connect Canyons podcast, he gives an overview of the importance of the 4,400 ESPs who are currently employed by CSD. Simply put, they’re the bus drivers, secretaries, custodians, plumbers, electricians, IT personnel, nutrition staff and so forth. “Our ESPs, they are here. They are dedicated, they’re loyal, they’re working their hearts out,” Perry said. “They’re helping kids.”

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!
