This week's teacher feature award goes to Andrew Lovell at West Side Elementary in Springville. His wife nominated him after an anniversary trip they planned to take to Uganda. Mr Lovell decided to make it meaningful to his students. While he was there, him and his students raised over $4,000 to help build a library. His wife says "He took pictures, used Facebook Live, and took videos so that he was able to show students the impact of their project from beginning to end."
She goes on to say, "He lives and teaches by the following motto, 'People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care'. His students not only know that but they feel that."
Andrew Lovell receives a special recognition award from Zions Bank, an overnight stay at the Anniversary Inn, dinner for two at the Roof Restaurant downtown, and two season passes to the Hale Center Theater. At the end of the year, one lucky teacher will win the lease of a new car provided by Burt Bros. Tire and Service.
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.
