Irving Teacher Named Regional Teacher of the Year
Nicole Butler, 2nd grade teacher at Irving Elementary, has been named the Oregon Regional Teacher of the Year. Nicole receives a $500 award and is automatically nominated for the honor of 2021 Oregon Teacher of the Year, to be announced this fall.
Now completing her 14th year in Bethel School District – all of them at Irving – Nicole has been recognized for her commitment to building relationships with students and families, and leading on culturally responsive teaching in her classroom and school.
The award was revealed at a brief morning online staff meeting, during which a surprised Nicole thanked all her co-workers for their support and the work they do with Irving children.
