SANDY — The Canyons Board of Education has named Monica Rotermund as the district's 2013 Teacher of the Year.

Rotermund teaches sixth-grade math at Brookwood Elementary School.

"Students leave her class with excellent math skills and an increased self-confidence," states a letter nominating Rotermund for the Teacher of the Year award. "Students thrive in Monica's class because of her passion for teaching and compassion for students."

The award includes $1,000 from the Canyons School District Education Foundation. The board also honored all 45 school teachers of the year and recognized two runners-up — Millie Rogers of Jordan Valley School and Rachel Hardy of Jordan High — at a special reception earlier this month.

Rotermund will represent Canyons School District in the Utah Teacher of the Year contest this fall.
