Work-Life Balance

Teaching is a demanding job, which makes achieving a healthy work-life balance all the more important. Canyons District’s administrative leave and sick bank policies are designed to provide employees with some peace-of-mind in the event of a major illness or accident.

Sick Bank

By default, all employees donate some of their sick days each year to Canyons District’s sick bank, which provides additional days of paid leave to employees who have a serious, unanticipated long-term illness. At the beginning of each school year, employees are given the option of opting out of the sick bank. But if they do so, they are not eligible to draw upon it. Because of this and the fact that the vast majority of employee sick days go unused, Human Resources encourages employees to contribute to the bank. Questions?

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!
