There’s a special place at Lone Peak Elementary where students and visitors alike can experience a warmth, support, and motivation that is unique to Michelle Mickelsen’s classroom. Some say you might immediately feel the enchantment as soon as you enter her room, listen to her speaking in calm and comforting tones, and watch as she helps students realize they are in charge of their own learning destiny. Her students know they can meet her expectations and achieve their goals because she is there to help. And Mickelsen constantly strives to continue her own learning journey, as well, always looking for opportunities to progress. Lone Peak Elementary is proud to name Mickelsen as the school’s Teacher of the Year.
