SANDY — Jordan High School's Angela Short recently received the 2014 Marketing Teacher of the Year Award from the Utah Association of Career and Technology Education Teachers.
“I had no idea. I was shocked,” said Short, who is in her 20th year as a teacher.
Her family, though, had been told about the award by event organizers and arrived in time to see her accept the prestigious award.
Short offers hands-on lessons. Students leave her class knowing how to bolster a brand, build customer loyalty and create retail displays that are eye-catching and convenient for the customer. She advises the students who run Jordan’s school store, where students can buy snacks and supplies. In all, they’ve been able to make about $10,000 from the store.
“Honestly, the best day of my life is when we have a discussion in class, when we are thinking through things, and seeing the world in a different way. There is something so satisfying in that,” Short said. “My goal coming in was that my students would know that I care about them.”
