Payson High School’s esteemed chemistry and astronomy teacher Linda Walter has received a PEAK Award for the month of November 2017; an award designed to showcase the positive energy and kindness of Nebo employees. She was nominated by Jesse Sorensen, RaShel Shepard, and Alyssa Behrend. They had only good things to say about Mrs. Walter when they related, “Linda has the role of technology mentor in our building and uses technology to reach more students. Not only does she help her students but is a leader when it comes to implementing technology that helps all students at PHS by providing training and support to the teachers. Linda works hard to ensure all students learn. She focuses on GRIT, which is giving students additional time to reach high levels of learning.”
“Mrs. Walter is very positive and loves her students more than any other teacher I know. She is very kind and generous. Mrs. Walter goes out of her way to make sure all students feel they are important, and that they have worth.”
Mrs. Walter later reflects how she felt when winning the award by saying,“I felt very flattered, and very honored that people would think that I was enthusiastic and kind.” PHS students and faculty should make sure to recognize Mrs. Walter for her extraordinary efforts as a teacher, and congratulate her on winning the PEAK award.
