Linda Garvin, who teaches second grade at Castle Heights Elementary,was recently named the Apples for Teachers award winner for the past school year by KUSA radio.
Garvin, who has worked for Carbon School District for 17 years, said she was thrilled to get the award.
“I love all aspects of teaching,” she said. “It is so much fun and with each new group of kids, I learn more.”
Garvin began her career in 1983 substituting in the district while her family was being raised. She spent many years working at all three levels in the district and finally decided to begin course work so she could become a certified teacher.
She got an associate degree from the College of Eastern Utah and then went onto the Utah State program to get a Bachelors degree. In 2007, she got a reading endorsement and a Masters degree from Utah State as well.
She worked at various grade levels at both Castle Heights and Sally Mauro Elementary over the years. She has taught in first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth grades.
She was nominated for the award by fellow second grade teacher Cecilia Averett this past year.
