SALT LAKE CITY — Chad Warnick has been named the 2023 Utah Teacher of the Year, as announced Thursday by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sydnee Dickson.

Warnick is an agriculture, biology, leadership and communications teacher at the Delta Technical Center in the Millard School District.

Teacher of the Year for 2023

Warnick was presented with a check for $10,000. The Delta resident will also compete with other Teacher of the Year winners in a national competition. Warnick will participate in a number of state and national leadership opportunities.

Teresa Hislop and Tracy Warenski were the runners-up. Hislop is an eighth-grade science teacher at Ogden Preparatory Academy Charter School. And Warenski teaches second grade at East Meadows Elementary School in the Nebo School District

A committee that includes representatives from parent and teacher advocacy organizations, charter schools, and the Utah State Board of Education picked Warnick as the winner.

“Mr. Warnick is the kind of teacher that students will be talking about for years to come,” said Landmark High School agricultural educator Monica D. Giffing in a news release. “He is not only committed to educating students on the subjects he teaches but he engrains life skills into their lives that they will use forever. His rapport with his students is unmatched, they too enjoy working, learning and playing alongside him.”

Warnick succeeds 2022 Utah Teacher of the Year Mark Berrett Daniels, a theatre teacher at Weber High School.
