Northwest Teacher Named Outstanding Biology Teacher
Dani Bainsmith, a science teacher at Northwest Middle School, has been selected to receive the 2016-17 Outstanding Biology Teacher award for the state of Utah.
Each year, the NABT Outstanding Biology Teacher Award (NABT OBTA) program recognizes an outstanding biology educator (grades 7-12) in each of the 50 states; Washington, DC; Canada; Puerto Rico; and overseas territories. Candidates are judged on their teaching ability and experience, cooperativeness in the school and community, inventiveness, initiative, student-teacher relationships, and commitment to the improvement of biology education. OBTA recipients are special guests of Carolina Biology Supply Company at the Honors Luncheon held at the NABT Professional Development Conference, receive gift certificates from Carolina Biological Supply Company, resources from other sponsors (including Colorado Biology Teachers Association), and award certificates plus a complimentary one-year membership from NABT and CBTA.
Dani will be honored at the NABT Professional Development Conference, held November 9-12 in St. Louis, Missouri. The Honors Luncheon recognizes the OBTAs from each state.
