District Technology Coordinator Honored At Statewide Conference
Posted on 12/06/2021

Robertson County Schools Instructional Technology Coordinator, Robin Couts, was awarded the first-ever Joan Gray Instructional Leadership award on Thursday, Dec. 2, at the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference in Murfreesboro, TN. 


The award, in honor of longtime educator and Bedford County director of technology, Joan Gray, was awarded by Gray, herself, who retired from TETA last year after more than 20 years of association with the group at all levels including executive director. 


Couts was selected from a group of nominees as the one who most typified instructional technology leadership above and beyond expected performance levels.  She is constantly looking for ways to improve learning and communication and has innovated a number of new approaches to learning. When COVID 19 affected school schedules and classroom attendance last year, Couts initiated many instructional technology methods for teachers and students alike, that are still widely used.


James Marshall, RCS Supervisor of Technology, said he believed no one was more worthy of the award than Couts.


“She is so well deserving of this award because she literally has the same passion for education that Joan had.” he said. 


Robertson County Schools is fortunate to have a technology coordinator with the drive and creativity of Couts.  Her selection for this prestigious award is testimony to her value to the RCS technology department and the district as a whole.
