SAISD announces Teachers of the Year, Rising Stars
05/04/2021

teacher awardsDuring Teacher Appreciation Week, San Antonio ISD has released its annual list of Teachers of the Year and its first-year Rising Star Teachers for each campus. Schools across the District have selected 130 honorees – 90 Teachers of the Year and 40 Rising Stars. 

“I am excited to congratulate our new cohort of Teachers of the Year and to celebrate our Rising Star Teachers,” said Superintendent Pedro Martinez. “A love for teaching and mentoring has always been at the heart of why teachers give so much of themselves to making a difference. Never has the love been stronger or more evident than this year. I thank our honorees for being the examples that they are and for choosing SAISD as their home.”

The Teacher of the Year award honors teachers who have been in the profession for at least three years and who excel in academic success, school leadership, and service to the school community. Each school’s Teacher of the Year was selected by a vote of his or her peers. Honorees will receive a certificate, personalized glass trophy, a $100 gift certificate to the Learning Zone, and a yard sign to place in their front yards.

The Rising Star award honors teachers who are still completing their first year of teaching. Principals nominate their finest first-year teachers who already demonstrate excellent practices. Honorees will receive a $50 gift certificate for the Learning Zone, an SAISD star key ring, a certificate of recognition, and a yard sign for their homes. 

Please join us in celebrating this year’s honorees:

 

SAISD anuncia a los Maestros del Año, premios de Rising Star

Durante la Semana de agradecimiento a los maestros, San Antonio ISD ha publicado su lista anual de Maestros del Año y sus Rising Stars (maestros ejemplares) de primer año para cada escuela. Las escuelas en todo el Distrito han seleccionado a 130 premiados – 90 Maestros del Año y 40 Rising Stars. 

“Estoy emocionado de felicitar a nuestro nuevo grupo de Maestros del Año y de celebrar a nuestros Maestros Rising Star”, dijo el Superintendente Pedro Martinez. “Un amor por la enseñanza y la orientación siempre han estado en el centro de por qué nuestros maestros dan tanto de sí para marcar una diferencia. El amor nunca ha estado más presente o evidente que este año. Les agradezco a nuestros maestros premiados por ser los ejemplos que son y por elegir a SAISD como su hogar”.

El premio de Maestro del Año reconoce a los maestros que han formado parte de la profesión por al menos tres años y quienes sobresalen en los logros académicos, el liderazgo escolar y el servicio a la comunidad escolar. La Maestra o el Maestro del Año de cada escuela fueron seleccionados por un voto de sus colegas. Los premiados recibirán un certificado, un trofeo de vidrio personalizado, un certificado de regalo de $100 para Learning Zone y un letrero para su patio que pueden colocar frente a su casa.

El premio de Rising Star reconoce a los maestros que aún están completando su primer año de enseñanza. Los directores nominan a sus mejores maestros de primer año quienes ya demuestran prácticas excelentes. Los premiados recibirán un certificado de regalo de $50 para Learning Zone, un llavero de SAISD, un certificado de reconocimiento y un letrero para el patio de su hogar.
