Crystal Prew received the Educator of the Month award at December’s Leader in Me Assembly on Friday, December 15th. Mrs. Prew has been a teacher at Monte Vista for the past 10 years, her first year being the year most of her students were born!

She grew up on the central California coast. We are really happy she chose to teach in Utah. Congratulations, Mrs. Prew, for being December’s Educator of the Month!
November’s Educator of the Month is Kristen Helton. According to Heather Miller, fourth grade teacher, “Kristen joined our faculty this year and has been such an asset to our school. She loves music, and she has shared this with our students. She is creative, prepared and always has a smile on her face. When you enter her classroom, you can feel the love she has for her students. She is organized and is good to collaborate with teachers to help plan music lessons that will go along with the core curriculum for each grade. It is wonderful to hear music in the hallways of Monte Vista. Thanks for all you do Kristen!”
