  • Mr. Cross - Retired Principal from Brookhollow Elementary School

    Mr Cross was an awesome Principal. I know that this is about teachers but technically he was a teacher at one point and continued to teach well up to his retirement as a Principal. He was very fair and patient with everyone. He made a lasting impression on me that I will hold close to my heart all my life!

  • Adam Graham - Onalaska High School

    Graham is our FFA teacher and does a great job! He supports us in everything we do and goes above and beyond to help us succeed. THANKS GRAHAM!

  • Linda Morris - Retired from Brookhollow Elementary

    Mrs. Morris was always so patient and always made you feel so special. Although I had many special teachers, she will always be my favorite!!!!

  • Kim Herman - Wells High School

    She's the best because she's our mom. She has done so much for the FCCLA program at Wells and the kids really like her!

  • Sandra Lambert - Hemphill Elementary

    Thank you for all you have done for Maisie this year and thank you for being a great teacher!

  • Mrs. Luce - Grapeland Elementary

    Mrs. Luce is a teacher who takes pride in her students. She helps them any way she can. She is a good teacher and friend to her students and i appreciate all that she does for them!

  • Mrs. Connor - Grapeland Elementary

    This teacher goes to the extreme to help all her students and she is one of the best teachers. She is friendly, and I really appreciate her as a teacher who takes great pride in her students!

  • Dorinda Wade - Dunbar Primary

    Dorinda is the principal at Dunbar, and as a former teacher she has a tremendous passion for her students and her staff. Her very nature is one of kindness and her willingness to help others is second to none. During the 2008 hurricanes, her school was turned into a shelter. She stayed at the school with the refugees, helping however she could. As the power went out and the storm continued, she never left to go home. She slept in a cafeteria full of people, rather than in her own bed. That kind of commitment to people is something she shows on a daily basis with her teachers and staff. She uses her own car to take students home if they missed the bus or were not picked up. She goes above and beyond her duties as an educator and works to improve not only the lives of her students, but the lives of the families they come from. She is a remarkable woman, and a shining examp le of what a teacher, a principal and a person should be.

  • Brittney Johnson - Huntington Elementary

    She never has a bad attitude, and is always willing to go out of her way for anyone. She has taught music here for years, and i couldn't see anyone else doing a better job than her. It takes a special person to be a teacher and to actually enjoy it, and you can tell she is one of those people. She is greatly appreciated more than she knows.

  • Sylvia Wearhers - Central High School

    She is more than just a teacher. She becomes friends with her students and treats them like a friend who needs teaching. She personalizes her lessons to address the real needs of her students. Every student loves her and the ones who don't have her as a teacher want awesome person all around.
