Introducing the 2019 Granite School District Teacher of the Year: Lauren Merkley of Cottonwood High School!
Lauren actually started her career in fundraising but soon realized what she was most passionate about was teaching. She left a successful job in New York and has been inspiring students and others ever since.
“She is an amazing teacher she’s so smart and friendly. She should be nominated because she’s outgoing and really knows how to connect with her students on a personal and educational level.”
Congratulations, Lauren! She will now be considered for the title of Utah Teacher of the Year.
