The Provo City School District and Board of Education gladly awarded five Provo Way awards in August. 

The Provo Way award is an opportunity for the district to celebrate the positive things students, teachers, administrators, parents, and staff do for the community.

This week, we’d like to celebrate and congratulate Provost Elementary teacher Teresa Dickson for her deep dedication to her students, school, and co-staff. To quote her nomination letter from fellow teacher Cynthia Ward:

Teresa is a teacher who goes above and beyond! She is deeply dedicated to her students and their learning. She takes the time to get to know each child and understand the best way to help them academically and emotionally. Teresa never stops moving! I have observed her going from one situation to another and always nurturing students and staff. She is truly a light!

Any student she works with will go forward as a stronger and more confident individual due to spending time with Miss Dickson. I am so thankful to associate with this wonderful teacher and example to people everywhere!

In our next article, we’ll spend a day in Dickson’s classroom as her students learn to dissect complex questions by digging in– literally– into some fruits and veggies. Please return to our News section tomorrow at 3:00 PM for the whole story.

This article is the first in a two-part series covering Teresa Dickson’s Provo Way award, what a day in her class looks like, and a quick breakdown of a lab assignment to highlight how she creates stellar lessons.
