Natalie Meyer knows what it takes to create champions, both in and outside of the classroom. Fellow teachers say that Meyer is the definition of dedication as both the math department chair and the tennis coach of the boys and girls teams. She meets with students before and after school — and sometimes even on Saturdays — to help them understand and start to enjoy mathematics. She’s an ace of a coach, too. Meyer, president of the Tennis Coaches’ Association of Utah, has coached teams to eight state championships.
It all adds up to this: Love, set, and match to Meyer, Brighton High’s 2018 Teacher of the Year.
