This week's teacher feature award goes to Glen Carpenter a drama teacher at Stansbury High. He gave up an accounting career to teach, and many students feel like they have a safe haven in Mr. Carpenter's classroom. He says that drama helps kids be better students, it helps them get higher test scores, and it helps them use every ounce of their brain. He has been commended by the principal for being able to pull the best out of the students. And he coaches drama students to state championships.
Mr. Carpenter 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.
