As a member of the Utah National Board Coalition, the UEA supports educators pursuing National Board certification. To recognize the significant achievement of those earning this prestigious distinction, the UEA has typically sponsored a day on Utah’s Capitol Hill during the annual legislative session where newly certified and renewed National Board teachers join together for breakfast, a legislative session briefing and recognition by the House of Representatives and Senate.
Due to COVID-19, the Coalition had to get creative to honor teachers earning National Board Certification this year. Coalition Board members personally delivered lawn signs and gift bags, sponsored by UEA, to individual educators.
“Earning National Board certification takes tremendous effort and dedication on the part of participating educators,” said UEA Director of Education Excellence Sara Jones. “It’s a privilege for the UEA to, in some small way, recognize those efforts. Congratulations to all our National Board educators.”
