Teacher of the Year
Miss Ruth Ann Weight selected as Millard School District’s Teacher of the Year for 2017-2018
Miss Ruth Ann Weight was honored at the Board of Education meeting held on Thursday, September 14, 2017 for her selection as Millard School District’s Teacher of the Year for the 2017-2018 school year.
Ruth Ann grew up in Springville, Utah where she attended public schools and loved her education experience. She graduated from Springville High School with honors. She attended Brigham Young University for her formal education earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.
She was the third child in her family with two older brothers, and two younger brothers. She had wonderful parents Kae and Janice Weight who were great examples to her.
When Ruth Ann was a young girl her youngest brother became very ill. This was a life changing event that taught her many lessons which to this day she will never forget. This experience inspired her to become an elementary teacher.
Upon graduating from BYU, Ruth Ann accepted a teaching position with Millard School District at Fillmore Elementary School. Her first position was in the second grade. She loved the small community, and she loved teaching the children. She has taught second grade for nine years and first grade for 27 years. Teaching has been her life, and she strives to help each of her students feel good about themselves and what they can accomplish.
She built a home in the quiet of the mountains where she loves to garden, read and study, and enjoy nature. She has many interests and hobbies, but the things that have brought her the most joy are teaching, spending time with family and friends, and spending time in church service.
Miss Weight was presented with a plaque from the Millard School District Board of Education with thanks and appreciation for the wonderful things she does in working with students, parents, staff, and faculty. She’s an amazing person! Congratulations Miss Weight!
