We received almost 200 nominations this year and decided to award seven Appreciated Teacher Awards due to the volume and quality of the nominations. It was an inspiring and humbling experience to read through all of the nominations. Nominations came from parents of students, fellow teachers, principals, siblings, sons and daughters and spouses. We hope our teachers know that they are truly appreciated.
The 2013 Appreciated Teachers are:
Amalia Savala – Meador Elementary (Pasadena ISD)
Janet Wohlgemuth – MacArthur Elementary School (Galena Park ISD)
Paul Tate – Pasadena Memorial High School (Pasadena ISD)
Brenda Sauser – Hall Elementary (Clear Creek ISD)
Debra Forehand – Crockett Elementary (Goose Creek CISD)
Stephen Steinbauer – Stewart Elementary (Hitchcock ISD)
Dung Tran – Clear Falls High School (Clear Creek ISD)
We will post more details on each recipient in the coming days. Each recipient will receive an engraved award, a $100 honorarium and a $100 donation to their school.
