I want to give a super special shout out to Ms. Bernie Sanders (Scott Elementary School)!!! Wow!! She came in and used up her own personal documentation time to help my special friends in a small group. She saw the need for me to be able to walk around and monitor the groups and their work, so she volunteered her transitional time to help. It was BEYOND appreciated and freed me up to make corrections with my other 6 groups.. PHEW!! God send today!!! - Sabrina Dutkanicz, Scott Elementary School Teacher
I'd like to submit Melissa Alverson (Scott Elementary School) for a Temple ISD shout out. I had a terrific conversation with her last week about our second grader. She was helpful, funny, and very, very sweet about our daughter. I was excited when we learned that she would be our daughter's teacher. We know she's very knowledgeable, and we are excited to see how our daughter will progress with her leadership this year. When I asked a question by email today, within moments, Ms. Alverson called me on the phone to talk through all my questions. She was unhurried, taking the time to explain everything so I could frame it in perspective, and was very encouraging about the work our daughter is already doing. Miss Alverson is a tremendous asset to Scott Elementary, and Temple ISD. -Regina Corley, Parent
I want to commend Isabel Enriquez (Spanish Teacher, Temple High School). Isabel has been with Temple ISD for many years. The cool thing about Isabel is she received her teaching certificate as an adult going back to school. She raised a family, was a hairstylist and even was the receptionist for the Temple High School Counseling Department back in 1998. She began her school career going to night classes and even traveling to Mexico for the summer to come back as a Bonham Middle School Spanish teacher. After many years of being at Bonham she has finally returned to where it all began. Congratulations Isabel, Temple High School missed you.
