Melody Watson could teach you a history lesson on the way a school can change over the years. She has been at Willow Springs Elementary since the Draper-area school opened, and has survived many modifications, from teaching year-round school to switching back to traditional, changing grades and learning new technology. Now she is one of the school’s technology experts, as the first to introduce a one-to-one, technology-infused classroom at Willow Springs. Through it all, she expects every student to succeed, and is an example of what the words “work ethic” mean. For these reasons, she is Willow Springs’ 2018 Teacher of the Year.
