We're saluting a Fairfield Junior High School teacher who knows a thing or two about science. Not only has he encouraged kids to get excited about the subject, but their science projects have competed at the highest level.
It started as a simple hobby. Once or twice a week, Mr. Mustache would show up at Doxey Elementary School. But this super volunteer is in such high demand at the school that he now shows up every morning at 7:30 a.m. and stays for several hours.
Chance are you or your kids have read the children's book The Magic School Bus. There's a teacher character in the book known as Ms. Frizzle. She takes her students on science field trips on a magic school bus. It turns out a teacher just like her is making a difference at one Utah middle school.
When our KSL news vehicle broke down in Milford we expected the worst. We quickly realized neighbors there know how to help those in need. And, as it turns out, we were not the only ones experiencing a desperate moment.
Their daughter was diagnosed with Dandy Walker Varient and told she would never walk, talk or write her name again. She can do all of those things now and her parents credit a loving teacher for helping her get there.
We gave a High 5 award to a woman who spans the globe looking for opportunities to help people. Not only that, when she's home here in Utah, she trains man's best friend with an eye on helping others see.
