2018-19 Teachers of the Year
During the school year, campus leaders each nominate a teacher for consideration for the GISD teacher of the month, and one elementary and one secondary teacher are selected for recognition at the Board meeting. Each nominee from throughout the year was then encouraged to apply for Campus Teacher of the Year, regardless of if they were selected for the monthly recognition. A total of 30 teachers applied and 5 were selected by their peers as Campus Teachers of the Year. In April, they were each surprised with the announcement while teaching in their classrooms, and again recognized in front of all staff at the District Awards ceremony.
Each Campus Teacher of the Year was then eligible to be awarded the GISD Teacher of the Year. GISD is proud to announce the 2018-2019 Secondary Teacher of the Year is Francisco Bermudez and the Elementary Teacher of the Year is Sharlene Bryan. The applications for Bermudez and Bryan were submitted to ESC Region 11 to compete for Regional Teacher of the Year.
