STISD Introduces the 2023 STISD Campus Teachers of the Year

2023 STISD Campus Teachers of the Year

The Board and administration recognized and congratulated the remarkable educators selected as this year's South Texas ISD Campus Teachers of the Year during the April 25 board meeting.

The first step in the 2023 STISD Teacher of the Year process involved nominations from students, faculty and staff, administration and parents. The three most-nominated faculty members per campus then applied to be Teacher of the Year at their campus, and a campus committee reviewed and selected the one campus winner.

Representing their campuses as the 2023 Campus Teachers of the Year, these teachers have now moved on to the next step in the STISD Teacher of the Year competition and applied to become the 2023 STISD Teacher of the Year.

The 2023 STISD Teacher of the Year will be announced in late May.
