HISD celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week May 6-10

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-11, and HISD is asking students, families and the community to “Thank a Teacher” in person or on social media using #ThankAnHISDTeacher.  

To celebrate our teachers’ commitment and service, HISD will recognize teaching excellence across our district at the annual Educators of the Year banquet on May 17, at the Hilton Americas Hotel.  

The western-themed event is an evening filled with celebration, where the district’s 2018-2019 Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year will be announced, as well as the recipients of the Beginning Teacher of the Year honors for elementary, middle school, and high school. The Fan Favorite Teacher, who was selected by a community survey, will also be announced. 

Additional recognitions include the 2017-2018 Elementary and Secondary Principals of the Year (named in February) and two instructional coaches for the Ann Sledge Instructional Coach Excellence Awards.  

Help recognize HISD’s “Shining Stars” and thank them for their service and commitment by sharing your photos, videos or kind words on Twitter and Facebook using #ThankAnHISDTeacher.
