HISD’s current longest-serving employee marks 55 years with district

2014 November 6
by HISD Communications

Back in February, we made a list of the longest-serving employees still working for the district, and at that time, Dr. Johnnie Carter, a teacher at DeAnda Elementary School, topped the list with 54 years of service.

This week, Dr. Carter is marking her 55th anniversary with HISD, and to celebrate, we are including a link to her original I Am HISD profile. Read more about what keeps her in the classroom, her favorite subject over the years, and when she plans to retire in that story, and be sure to leave a comment below to congratulate her.
