Thank an Educator During Teacher Appreciation Week May 7–11

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7–11 and HISD would like to extend its thanks to the more than 10,000 teachers who serve our students.  And what better way to say “thank you” than to share some inspiring stories about favorite teachers from students across the district:

Carolyn Wiley
Bonner ES, Grade 4

Submitted by Annette M. Comacho, parent

She is a very generous person. She does a lot for her students. She gives them advice when they need it. She encourages them to do their best in school as well as in life. My son was in her class last year, and that year was by far the best year for him. He read a lot of books and was an honor roll student in part because of her. She didn’t let him give up when he thought it was too hard. She encouraged him to do his best because she knew he could do it. To this day, she is still helping and encouraging him to do his best. You know how sometimes, there is just one teacher that you have? You don’t forget them because they were a big influence in your life. Well, Ms. Wiley is one of the teachers that I am sure my son and I will never forget. I am very grateful that she came into my son’s life, as well as mine. She has also given me good advice when I needed it. The world needs more teachers like her.
