Teacher of the Year Announced

Posted in News & Announcements

Our teacher of the year is the epitome of the term master teacher.  She is an amazing teacher who is a model for all who know and work with her.  She understands how a school system works, what best practices look like, how to accept responsibilities, and most importantly what children need to learn.  She is a teacher every parent dreams his or her child will have.  She is a great educator who inspires, teaches, and encourages the heart.  Her genuine concern for everyone is displayed in her calm, friendly demeanor, gentle responses, and positive actions.



After 40 years of teaching, Joyce Acosta remains dedicated to her craft.  Mrs. Acosta is often the first to arrive at Edgemont Elementary in the morning and the last to leave at night.  She joined Canyons School District with a desire to help all of her students become college-and-career-ready, and she is an expert at re-teaching concepts to struggling students while simultaneously providing enriching experiences for students who have mastered skills.  She continues to educate herself to learn new ways to capture a young child’s attention, and leads her peers with her positive example.  For these reasons, Joyce Acosta has been selected as Edgemont Elementary School’s 2015 Teacher of the Year!
