PEAK Award presented to Hobble Creek Elem. teacher
Tina Wilkinson, a teacher at Hobble Creek Elementary School in Mapleton, was recently presented with a PEAK Award from Nebo School District. She was nominated for the honor by Michael-Ann McAfee, who also works as a teacher at Hobble Creek.
The PEAK (Positive Energy and Kindness) Award is presented monthly to someone in the Nebo School District who “really gets it” when it comes to providing exceptional customer service, which in turn results in positive impacts on everyone including students, parents, co-workers and members of the community. Nebo faculty and staff members are nominated for PEAK Awards by anyone in the community through the Nebo School District website, www.nebo.edu/PEAK. All nominations must include information on how the individual has provided exceptional customer service as well as how the employee’s actions have impacted the nominator’s overall perception of Nebo School District schools.
Michael-Ann McAfee said of Wilkinson, “Tina is always cheerful and positive. She works with struggling students all day, every day. She implements and oversees behavior plans for students with severe behavior issues but is always kind and helpful and never says an unkind word. She sees the good in everyone and spreads it around, helping Hobble Creek Elementary be a school filled with positive energy.
“Mrs. Wilkinson is trained in the Wilson Reading System that took four years to complete. Many students and their families have been positively influenced by Mrs. Wilkinson’s teaching skills and kindness. That success impacts the community and reflects back positively on Nebo School District.”
