News from Dr. Cruz: Teachers of the Year

Team AISD,

An educator's true value is measured in the wisdom that's shared with generations of students. We can all think of a teacher who had such a positive effect on our lives.

Our district is fortunate to have so many tireless advocates, who care so much about our students and families. With the most National Board Certified Teachers in Texas, AISD’s educators have the training to help their students achieve.

The National Board program is designed to promote excellence in teaching through self-reflection and study of practice. We're excited about the potential of our teachers currently working on their components for certification.

A highlight of the spring semester is recognizing our teachers of the year at their respective campuses. I hope you'll make plans to attend Salute, where these outstanding educators will be lauded, and where one will be named the Austin ISD Teacher of the Year.

As we approach May, which is National Teacher Appreciation Month, I want to take a moment to thank our teachers for their belief in our children and the daily difference they make in our community. I encourage you to take time to thank a teacher who inspired you.

Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
