We LOVE our Teachers!
Every December and May, CSISD students and parents have an opportunity to honor a teacher through the “Star Educator”program. The tribute shows appreciation to teachers and staff, and raises funds with a $10 donation to the Foundation. Over 3,100 educators have been recognized and $64,500 has been raised for our schools through this program over the past 19 years!
Emily Ramos was among 400 Star Educators honored this year. Mrs. Ramos transitioned from being the music teacher at College Hills Elementary to Choir Director at AMCHS. We are told by students and staff that Mrs. Ramos made a big impact in short time for the choir. A choir parent honored her for Star Educator, and a senior choir student wrote the following about her:
“Mrs. Ramos proves herself as an influential educator through her incredible work ethic, teaching style and understanding attitude. She allows students to be truly honest which makes them ready to learn. Despite given ridiculous time frames to prepare for choir events, she remained calm and prepared her students to perform with success and confidence. Her phenomenal musical knowledge and teaching ability truly make her a Star Educator.”
With a minimum $10 donation per teacher all Star Educator recipients will receive:
a congratulatory card identifying the donor
a Star Educator lapel pin
recognition in The Eagle newspaper and on Foundation website and social media
The Star Educator applications for May are now CLOSED. Have a great summer!
