Educator of the Year named
Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom (WAIC) named Marissa Cornelison the 2020 Educator of the Year. Mrs. Cornelison currently teaches fifth grade at Mountain View Elementary in Uinta County.
Cornelison is active in her school, community and WAIC programs. She has been involved with writing, revising and teaching the Wyoming Stewardship Project over the past three years.
Over the last two years, Cornelison has taught the Wyoming Stewardship Project to every fifth grade student at Mountain View Elementary. She said she appreciates the unbiased way information is presented and the sense of stewardship and state pride the lessons inspire in her students.
Cornelison commented, “I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to be a part of the Stewardship Project in many aspects. I am constantly telling people I meet about this wonderful project I am a part of and sharing why I think it is so exceptional.”
In support of Cornelison’s award, Toni Martin wrote, “Marissa is a skilled teacher. Peers, parents and community members recognize her work ethic and dedication to her students.”
Kim Dolezal, assistant superintendent of Uinta County School District #4, commented, “Marissa is a true ambassador for Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom.”
WAIC is grateful for Cornelison’s continued enthusiasm and support of their education programs. As the 2020 Educator of the Year, Cornelison will be awarded a cash prize of $1,000 through Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom. The award is sponsored by Mantha Philips and the Wyoming Livestock Roundup.
