Regan Lundell, a well-loved first grade teacher at Park View Elementary, was voted "Teacher of the Year." Lundell grew up in Payson and has lived here most of her life. Her mother was a teacher and as Lundell helped in the classroom, she knew that she wanted to be a teacher too. She attended Southern Utah University, majoring in Elementary Education, with a double minor in Reading and Child Development, two areas of specialty that are very dear to her. She has also completed her Masters Equivalent in Reading through Brigham Young University.

Lundell has taught for fourteen years. She taught kindergarten for three years before moving up to first grade. She has been at Park View for the past four years. When asked about teaching, Lundell said she loves summers but always looks forward to the beginning of the new school year. She feels fortunate to have an occupation that allows her to help children learn to read, write, and learn new skills in math, science, and social studies.

Lundell has worked with BYU's Art Committee with Fine Arts and has presented for other educators in the fields of Reading and the Arts. She also serves as a mentor for new teachers. Lundell likes to read, play the piano, scrapbook, and crochet. She said her favorite thing to do is teach first grade.

Park View is happy to have Miss Lundell at our school. She is a dedicated and loving teacher who is adored by her students. Congratulations!
