Teacher of the Year

Each year, all Canyons schools and programs select one Teacher of the Year through a competitive selection process. The winning educator receives a crystal award from the Canyons Board of Education and gifts from local business partners. Students, parents, patrons, PTAs, business partners, and Canyons employees are all invited to nominate an educator during the annual nomination window.  All teachers who have completed at least one year in the classroom are eligible for consideration. She or he also must showcase outstanding teaching practices, professionalism, and involvement in the school community. 

From the field of school-based honorees, the CSD Administration, after reviewing student achievement data and evaluating instructional practices, choses one overall CSD Teacher of the Year. That teacher, who receives additional prizes from the Canyons Education Foundation and major donors, also becomes Canyons’ nominee for Utah’s Teacher of the Year honors. 

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!
