  4. Georgette Joseph

    Jessica Joseph is so deserving of this award. She is the most passionate teacher in HISD and all her students love her. She’s always willing to go the extra mile for all of our children and works tirelessly every day to help them grow as scholars. She feels all children deserve the right to an exceptional education and works diligently to provide just that. She genuinely cares for all her students and makes herself available to them even when she is off work. She commands respect and hard work while still making it fun to learn. Jessica Joseph is my daughter and my FAVORITE HISD TEACHER.
