CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2023 EMPOWERED PARENTS TEACHER OF THE YEAR, KAMRON REESE!
Kamron teaches 5th grade at Robert Frost Elementary School in the Granite School District. He was nominated by parent, Jessica Hardenbrook, who had this to say about him:
"When my son went to see him during back to school night Mr. Reese was talking to him about what he expects. My son made a comment that he is usually below goal with his grades. Mr. Reese in such a supportive way said, 'that is going to change. I expect my students to excel.' He wants them to try their very best and he will help them be the best they can. He is fantastic. He expects a lot and I think our kids need that push and encouragement. This past week my son came home so excited that he aced his math test. My son can’t remember the last time he got 100% on a test. Mr. Reese called that day from the school and expressed how proud of my son he was. I can tell he truly cares about the students and wants them to do their very best."
We awarded Kamron with a $500 check to show our appreciation. We are so grateful for House Representative, Judy Weeks Rohner, and Granite School Board Members Karyn Winder and Kim Chandler for their help in presenting his award to him. Thank you also to Principal Brandon Moore for his willingness to let us surprise Mr. Reese during class!
