This week's teacher feature award goes to Shaynie Wayman a special ed teacher from Oquirrah Elementary. She worked tirelessly to catch one of the students up to speed. When the students' parents became homeless, they had to move the student to a new school. Mrs. Wayman helped personally with the transition of the student to a new school and a new teacher. She also kept in touch long after the student had been out of the previous school.
Mrs. Wayman 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.
