Mrs. Liz Dickenson is the Chemistry and AP Chemistry teacher at Logan High and has worked here for the past four years.
“She is honestly one of the best teachers ever because she cares about what’s going on with me, and that is so important to me,” said one of her students, Melodee Zappitello.
Dickenson is originally from Puerto Rico and moved to Kansas in 2004. She has since lived in Oklahoma and now currently resides in Utah. She moved to Logan because her husband of 10 years, Nick Dickenson, was offered the job of an assistant professor of Biochemistry at Utah State.
"[Mrs. Dickenson] cares about what's going on with me, and that is so important to me."
They have two kids, a nine-year-old daughter named Alana and a five-year-old son named Christopher. Outside of school, Dickenson likes to “dance, go four-wheeling, play with my kids, try new restaurants with Nick, and read.”
Dickenson is the teacher advisor for the ping pong club, even though she does not play ping pong herself. Her favorite tradition at Logan High is by far the diversity assembly because she loves to watch the students showcase their talents and see all the different cultures.
Dickenson doesn’t particularly have any favorite stories but, other than visits from past students, she said, “I am all about the little things. I have truly enjoyed every little note, thank you, doodle that I have been given by my students.”
Teacher of the Month
Some food for thought: These people have to deal with rotten, smelly teenagers for nearly seven hours, five days a week. Now, that's commitment. That's why here, we've dedicated a space for students to recognize teachers and their dedication. They deserve it.
