Selected out of hundreds of educators from more than 600 schools across the state of Utah, Sandberg was chosen for this prestigious award for her outstanding abilities in creating meaningful relationships with students, parents and with the PTA and community during her 24-year teaching career at Mapleton Elementary School. She now teaches at Maple Ridge Elementary, which is also located in Mapleton.

r

Sherry Sandberg was nominated by Kim Heaps, PTA president, with a letter of recommendation from Principal Julie Perry.

r

From Sandburg’s own words: “My role as a teacher is to love, appreciate and inspire children. I base my relationship with my students on honesty, trust and mutual admiration. I feel I can’t go wrong if my students know that they are genuinely valued for who they are and the good each brings to my classroom daily. I am to bring a healthy dose of humor, creativity, curiosity and amazement to the classroom each day.”

r

One mother stated, “Mrs. Sandberg is amazing because she is not afraid to fly her true colors. She is a master at integrating curriculum and the students can see application of what they are learning in their everyday, real-life experiences.”

r

During the past 24 years, Sandberg has started, led and supported the following programs: Sandberg Superstars, German Scientist Honorary Professor, Parent Link, Underwater Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV’s), German Christmas Carols at Christmas Tree Lighting and City Office Ribbon Cutting Events.

r

In the PTA program, Sandberg served as the vice president and volunteered and supported more than 20 school programs including the school carnival, chess club, jump-roping club and room mother’s support.
