Local Named Instructional Coach Of The Year

by | Feb 1, 2023 | News | 0 comments

A Uintah School District instructional coach has been named the 2023 Outstanding Coach by the Utah Coalition for Educational Technology.  The announcement from the Uintah School District states that instructional coach Bekah Jones not only meets the award criteria; she exceeds it. Jones was nominated by Uintah High Principal Christy Nerdin, USD literacy specialist Tawna Baumgardner and instructional coach Machele Lemon. The instructional coaching priority in the Uintah School District is to support and mentor provisional teachers. Jones created a district-wide mentoring course called PEAKS to best meet the needs of new teachers. “Bekah’s impact is far-reaching and powerful,” Nerdin, Baumgardner and Lemon shared in the nomination letter. “She is the obvious choice for this award and we’re also pretty sure she wears a cape!” Jones will receive her award on March 14th, during the first day of the Utah Coalition for Educational Technology’s annual conference in Provo.
