On Thursday, January 18, Mrs. Norton's 4th Grade participated in a 'Mystery Skype' with another fourth grade class in the Salt Lake School District, in our library.  Each class picked a book they were familiar with and then made a list of 'yes' or 'no' questions they could ask the other class about the book they had chosen.  Mrs. Staheli and Mrs. Lewis (the other school's librarian) kept things on track as the classes took turns asking and answering questions over FaceTime, and by the end of library, the other class guessed that the book Mrs. Norton's class had chosen was "Charlotte's Web".  It took a couple of good hints on their part, but we finally guessed that the book they had picked was "The Chocolate Touch".  It was a great activity that all the fourth graders had fun with!

Nebo School District’s teacher Shareka Gregory, was nominated and WON the KSL Teacher Feature.

Mrs. Gregory was nominated by parent, Ashley Atwater. She said in part:
“When my daughter was able to turn in a request form last May, the first teacher on her list was Mrs. Gregory. I knew nothing about her or her teaching style, but my daughter was drawn to her. As this school year approached, she celebrated as she found out who her teacher was. She was so excited to start school and be in Mrs. Gregory's class.

“School starts and from day one, my daughter has loved going to school. When she has to stay home because she is sick, my daughter cries because she will miss out on all of the awesome things Mrs. Gregory has planned for them. Mrs. Gregory has an Instagram for her fourth-grade class. On there, she takes pictures and videos of the kids and things they are working on at school. As a parent, I love this! I cannot be there every day to see all the amazing things she is doing, but I feel like a part of it because Mrs. Gregory takes the time to do this.

“It doesn't stop there... we received our monthly newsletter in our child's folder, and it read at the top something similar to this, ‘Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Then she explained that when her heart is aching she just wants to serve. She adopted a class and was in close contact with a teacher in Texas effected by the hurricane and was collecting and mailing supplies and donations to them. This just shows you what kind of a person she is. We think she is just amazing, and I know I am not the only parent that feels this way!”

KSL NewsRadio and Zions Bank are proud to honor Utah's best teachers with the KSL Teacher Feature Awards! Since 1994, Teacher Feature has highlighted outstanding teachers throughout the State of Utah. Winning teachers are announced every Tuesday morning, September through June, on Utah's Morning News with Brian & Amanda.

Each winning teacher is honored with a plaque from Zions Bank, an overnight stay at Anniversary Inn, a gift certificate for dinner at the beautiful Roof Restaurant at Temple Square and a pair of season tickets from Hale Centre Theater!

All winners are also invited to attend an end-of-year banquet at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in their honor. In addition, one lucky teacher will win the grand prize 2-year lease on a new car courtesy of Burt Brothers Tire and Service.

A panel of judges from Zions Bank, the State Office of Education, and KSL NewsRadio judge the hundreds of nominating letters. The letters can be sent in by anyone - students, peers, former students and even relatives. If you would like to nominate a deserving teacher, go to www.kls.com/?nid=191(link is external).
