“I am ecstatic and I am honored to know that I have been able to have this type of impact on my students,” she said. As an educator, we strive to make small differences in young lives that will hopefully carry with them forever. I can’t begin to express my gratitude. There are so many amazing and wonderful teachers in Utah. I am truly humbled. Wow! Thank you so much!”
Mrs. Broderick was also very grateful for Instucture, which is teaming up with the Jazz to make all this happen.
Employees there say it is so fun to see how excited students get for their teachers.
The Utah Jazz, Instructure and KSL TV are teaming up to honor the state’s most valuable educators throughout the 2022-23 season.
Members of the public can nominate anyone in the local community, including students, parents, peer educators, principals, administrators and college deans. Nominators will be asked to answer, “How does this educator inspire students, spark curiosity and support student growth and achievement?”
Each winner will receive a $1,000 classroom grant from Instructure, parent company of Canvas, and a personalized jersey.
They will also get to attend an awards dinner with the Jazz and Instructure at the end of the season. Instructure will also be providing 300 tickets for Utah educators to attend the Jazz game on March 18.
