Tammy Crandall was honored as the Utah Valley Educator of the Week. She was an elementary teacher in Nebo School District for the past 26 years.
A colleague said, "Tammy Crandall is a fifth-grade teacher at Rees Elementary. She graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo and then began her teaching career in Nebo School District. During her 26 years, Tammy taught second, third, and fifth grades and educated students at Taylor Elementary in Payson, Hobble Creek Elementary in Mapleton, and most recently at Rees Elementary in Spanish Fork.
Tammy is known as a team player at the various schools she served. She is often the first person to arrive at the school each day and one of the last to leave. She spends this time making former lessons better for her class and for the other fifth-grade classes. Tammy loves to use technology in her class and helps her teammates to use it too. This extensive use of technology helped the entire fifth-grade excel when "At Home Learning" became the new normal for the school year. Her students already had technology procedures in place, therefore making this learning/teaching change not as hard or confusing for her students.
