Several Texas associations believe that the success of Texas students is in large part due to the educators in this great state, and we are giving Texans the opportunity to recognize educators with our 180-day educator recognition marathon!  Anyone can recognize a teacher, librarian, principal or superintendent whose work ensures that Texas students not only cross the finish line, but also complete their coursework with a banner year for public education in Texas.  Our goal is to recognize at least 100,000 Texas educators by completion of our 180 days of this school year.

    I would like to nominate Social Studies teacher, Mr. Jeff Chunda from Flatonia ISD. He is an amazing teacher with true calling to teach. He brings Texas history to life in his classroom. His students KNOW their history at the end of the year and that’s what it’s all about. I should add that he includes ALL students without race boundaries because they are all part of the history of this great state.
    Please consider him as an outstanding teacher!

    I love this idea. My favorite teacher was Mrs. Z (none of us ever learned how to spell her last name!). Her maiden name was Bass. She was so much fun. I am now a teacher because of her. And try my hardest to be like her in the classroom….caring, encouraging, inspiring, helping, fun, firm…..I have never been one to understand math, but her accounting class was one if my favorites. She had the patience and respect with me that others did not. I really wish I could find her and tell her these things.
