He is passionate about driver education and is continually looking for ways to improve his teaching. That is just one reason why Riverton High’s Steve Galley was recognized as this year’s Zero Fatalities Driver Education Teacher of the Year.
The Utah Driver Education Teacher of the Year is someone who continually inspires novice drivers to learn how to be safe on Utah roads, sets high expectations in the classroom and has earned the respect and admiration of students, colleagues, and the community.
During an awards ceremony, Zero Fatalities said Steve has created a pacing guide with unit plans to clearly articulate curriculum and expectations to students. He understands the importance of parent involvement in driver education and has created a booklet outlining habits and help for parents and students to work together to learn safety and rules of the road.
Steve is a Champion of Zero Fatalities Parent Nights and expects every one of his students to attend. He volunteered and was a huge contributor on the writing committee for the new driver education standards.
Congratulations, Steve. Thank you for your commitment to ensure new drivers are safe for years to come.
