The Uintah Basin has been blessed with many talented and hard-working teachers, as well as employees. The Uintah School District has announced the winner of the Uintah School District Teacher of the Year. The winners, according to the district, “were chosen from a phenomenal pool of nominees and the selection committee had a difficult task in choosing just one from each category.” The Teacher of the Year is Erin Brown who is a speech-language pathologist at Central Cove Preschool. Another award that is given is Classified Employee of the Year. The winner of that award is Sally Phillips, a Uintah School District bus driver. The school district feels it “is truly fortunate to have so many exceptional employees.” We thank all our teachers and employees that support our children’s educational efforts. A profound congratulations goes out to Erin Brown and Sally Phillips for all that they do.
