Nebo School District’s teacher Shareka Gregory, a teacher at Sierra Bonita Elementary, 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.
Principal Cami Thomas introduced Larsen Elementary staff and students to the Nebo School Board of Education by stating they were excited to share the great opportunities at Larsen Elementary this year.
Hally Stubbs, sixth-grade student council, presented how the students are becoming leaders through learning about how to accept others, respect all, show success, empower self, and notice needs. The school celebrates successes each month in an awards assembly.
