2.B. BOARD RECOGNITION
2.B.1. Ms. Mindy Simon - Davis Connect 1st Grade Teacher
Presenter:  Dr. Logan Toone, Dr. Ryan Hansen, Ms. Stephanie Mouritsen
Description:  We wish to recognize Mindy Simon, a 1st grade teacher in Davis Connect, for her exemplary efforts to build relationships with students this school year. One of her greatest connection tools has been to drive to every student’s home and bring them a birthday gift. This has allowed her students to see her as a real person, who cares about them as individuals. Her students know that she cares about and will go out of her way (even driving to Logan, Utah) to make sure they feel loved. 
 
Her creative and personalized outreach has not only helped students to feel connected with her, but it has directly impacted student engagement in her live online class sessions. Ms. Simon gets 100% attendance and engagement in her live sessions, where students receive valuable Tier 1 instruction, delivered using the innovative and best practice instructional strategies Ms. Simon has worked to develop and implement this year. 
 
Because of her efforts, students are highly successful in her class. While success can be measured in a myriad of ways, one measurement we use is Acadience testing data--where we assess students' literacy skills. At the beginning of the year, 36% of Ms. Simon's students were meeting the 1st grade benchmark. By the middle of the year, 79% of her students were meeting the benchmark--which was a 44% increase from the beginning of the year. The district average for student gains in benchmarks for 1st grade is 15%. Ms. Simon's students were 26% higher than the district average. This was a gain of 43% of her students meeting grade level benchmark and being on-target for reading success--a crucial skill for lifelong learning and success. But the most impressive achievement is that 93% of Ms. Simon's students are growing at or above students in the nation who started the year just like they did in 1st grade! This is astronomical! The district average pathways to progress for student growth is 73.9%, and Ms. Simon's class was 20% higher than the district average. This success correlates directly with the level of relationship building and connection Ms. Simon has fostered with her students. 
 
2.B.2. Dr. Tim Best, Ms. Kim Johnson– 2021 Healthy Worksite Award
