Teachers do much more than teach

May 3, 2017

We all remember teachers who inspired us at one time or another. Teacher Appreciation Week is dedicated to remembering and honoring all educators.

Established by the National PTA, the theme for this year’s Teacher Appreciation Week is “Teachers Deliver.” Teachers deliver so much to students – they deliver inspiration, motivation, and ultimately, their future. Teachers change the lives of millions of children every day, and their work and impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the classroom.

Three NISD District Educators of the Year are featured in this week’s Video of the Week as part of Teacher Appreciation Week activities.  

Featured are Northside Educator of the Year Traci Aliano, a fifth grade teacher at Ott Elementary School, Northside First Year Educator of the Year Peggy Shaskan, fifth grade teacher at Lieck Elementary School, and Suzanne Diou, a counselor at Kuentz Elementary School who was the District’s nominee for  the 2017 Trinity Prize for Excellence in Teaching Award.
