State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson was joined in the classroom by State Senator Kathleen Riebe and Representative Carol Spackman Moss along with Jordan School District Superintendent Anthony Godfrey. They thanked Ms. Boren for her 20 years of teaching and mentoring in Jordan School District and told students how lucky they are to have such an amazing teacher. Representative Moss said teaching is a gift that keeps on giving and there is no greater gift than a “gifted teacher.”
