Stand Together: CSD Students, Teachers United in their Hopes for the School Year

They’re excited and a little nervous, eager to meet new people and try new things, and grateful to be returning to the familiar rhythms of school.

It’s a new school year in Canyons District filled with familiar hopes for students and teachers — and there’s something comforting about that. Something comforting about knowing that, amid all the noise dominating the airwaves, social media, and our head space, buses are rolling and school bells are ringing — that schools remain a unifying force in the community and a safe haven for learning.

With headlines focusing so much on what tears us apart, we’re kicking off the school year with an exploration of what brings us together. We recently interviewed a handful of students and first-year teachers. We asked how they were feeling about the school year, and about their fears, hopes and aspirations. And guess what? We discovered that there is far more that unites than divides us.

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!
