Nate Melton, a special education teacher at Maple Grove and Spanish Fork High, was recognized at the Council for Children with Behavioral Disorders (CCBD) Conference in Salt Lake City. Melton was recognized with the Ken Reavis Special Educator of the Year award.
Melton has been teaching in the Nebo School District for 10 years. Until this year, he worked in the elementary options units providing support to a wide range of students. Now he is working with middle school and high school students.
The CCBD Conference theme was centered around connections.
“It was no surprise that connections is where Nate excels,” Nebo’s behavior specialist, Neeley Kay, said. “Nate has a great ability to connect with his students, the parents of his students, as well as his colleagues. He works hard to increase his capacity to help others and enhance his lessons for the students.”
This group focuses on addressing the social emotional needs of tough kids and making a difference for those that need extra help.
Congratulations Nate Melton for being a Nebo Hero and being recognized with this well-deserved award.
