Congratulations to College of Education alumna Juliana Urtebey, Nevada's 2021 Teacher of the Year!
Urtubey graduated from the college in 2009 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and in 2011 with a master’s degree in special education. The Booker Elementary School learning strategist will be the spokesperson for Nevada’s roughly 27,000 educators and a resource on the state of education in Nevada.
As an educational leader, mentor, and ambassador, Urtubey will make connections with schools, colleges, universities, organizations related to education, the legislature, and stakeholders around the state to elevate teachers, classrooms, and the teaching profession. She adds, “I owe a lot to my formation at The University of Arizona and my time at the College of Education.”
