Urbandale Middle School Teacher Receives 2023 Educator of the Year Award

On May 31, 2023, the Urbandale Chamber of Commerce presented the Educator of the Year Award to Urbandale Middle School (UMS) 7th Grade Science Teacher Tiffany Roberson during a surprise presentation at an assembly. Roberson is well-known for going above and beyond, but this year in particular, she made efforts of extreme selflessness and compassion in support of UMS students, staff, and families.  

In addition to being highly respected and admired by students, Roberson is also seen as a trusted peer and confidant by coworkers. She exemplifies the “J-Hawk Way” by modeling safety, empathy, accountability and respect. She is a teacher leader with technology, a staff mentor, leads the school Variety show and never hesitates to help fellow teachers with anything and everything.

UCSD congratulates Roberson on receiving the 2023 Urbandale Chamber Educator of the Year Award. An incredibly well-deserved honor! #UMSpride
