This week's teacher feature award goes to Diane Rockwood who is now the Principle of Freedom Elementary. She taught for 26 years prior to the nomination. The mother of one of her students nominated Principle Rockwood because her son who has mild autism, was able to come out of his skin and participate in Principle Rockwood's classes prior to her becoming principle. A huge step for the student.
Principal Rockwood 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 new 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.
