She has been teaching in the classroom for 23 years, but Melo Hansen had a brand new experience as she began this school year. The Midas Creek Elementary School kindergarten teacher was surprised at a school assembly by KSL News Radio’s Maria Shilaos and Zion’s Bank with the “Teacher Feature” award. Ms. Hansen was recognized as an educator who is always looking for the best teaching strategies and someone who has had a life-long love of learning. Principal Carolyn Bona says Melo is a great teammate and she is always sharing knowledge, supporting and encouraging her colleagues at Midas Creek. Congratulations to this amazing educator on this well deserved recognition!
