RIVERDALE — People have asked Tanya Tremea if she ever gets tired of teaching first grade at Riverdale Elementary School. After all, she has been teaching there for 26 years.
Her quick answer is always a firm, “No.” She says she loves what she does and sees each day as a new opportunity.
It’s that positive attitude that got her named teacher of the year in Weber School District this year.
“She is the poster child for being optimistic … and most of all an advocate for her students,” Principal Tommy Lee said in the nomination letter to the district.
Tremea said she was surprised by the nomination and even more surprised when she won.
“They just showed up in my room with the award,” she said.
Tremea graduated from Brigham Young University with her bachelor’s degree and received her master’s degree from Grand Canyon University.
