Meet Our Teacher of the Year


Congratulations to sixth-grade teacher Kami Abercrombi who named Draper Elementary's 2012-13 Teacher of the Year today.

Mrs. Abercrombi loves helping her students, whether they seek to mummify a chicken or learn a Shakespearean play.  The sixth-grade teacher builds a community in her Draper Elementary classroom by inviting parents and students to join her in an educational partnership.

She prepares her students for middle school by instilling in them a sense of motivation and responsibility. She provides extracurricular opportunities for students via the Student Council, Safety Patrol, and Debate and Creative Pursuits teams, the latter of which has won two state competitions. 

“Students want to perform their best for her because of her leadership skills and her ability to engage her students,” her nominator writes. “Mrs. Abercrombie is the best teacher my girls have had at Draper Elementary and in the Canyons School District.”
