"My daughter's 2nd grade teacher, Ms. Snow, at Meador Elementary in Willis ISD. She works so hard to make distance learning easy for the parents and fun for the kids. She even went door to door and brought goody bags and 'air hugs' to all her students last week."

"The entire teaching staff at First Colony Middle School in Fort Bend ISD deserves a huge shout out for teacher appreciation week. I have never worked with a more positive, caring, and energetic staff who truly care about kids. Their hard work and dedication is evident each and every day, and has been even stronger over the past two months as they’ve managed various stressors of living through a pandemic while continuing to deliver high quality instruction to our students. They are giving it their all, even from home, and I am honored to be their principal. 💙"

"My Mom! She teaches visually impaired students and students with learning disabilities. She has been teaching blind students Braille for over 20 years and started teaching kids with learning disabilities because she saw how hard it was for me (I have dyslexia). She went back to school and got her certification to teach kids with learning disabilities! She’s amazing!!"
