toy-waving-catThey are cancer-fighters, special educators, and everyday heroes to thousands of children. Congratulations to all 46 of our Canyons School District Teachers of the Year, named in surprise celebrations at every school in Canyons District on Friday, March 28. These outstanding educators inspire students of all ages, be they in a kindergarten class in Sandy, or at the Utah State Prison's South Park Academy. Each was nominated by peers, parents and students for the Teacher of the Year award, for which they received donated gifts and prizes from area business partners.

All 46 school Teachers of the Year now vie for the District Teacher of the Year award, which will be announced at a Board of Education Recognitions Event on Tuesday, April 22 at 7 p.m. the Canyons Support Services Center, 9361 S. 300 East (southeast entrance). The District Teacher of the Year award comes with additional prizes, including a $1,000 check from the Canyons School District Education Association.

All Teachers of the Year also will be honored at halftime at Canyons District Night at Real Salt Lake on Saturday, May 17. Discount tickets to Canyons Night at Real Salt Lake are available to CSD patrons and employees, with part of the proceeds to benefit the Canyons Education Foundation. The 2014 Canyons Idol will kick off the game by singing the National Anthem.
