Richardson ISD has announced its twelve 2007-2008 STARS (Superior Teaching Achievements in RISD) teachers of the year. RISD Tomorrow, Inc., the district’s non-profit foundation working for excellence in education for all RISD students, once again sponsored the selection and recognition of this year’s STARS teachers. Students and colleagues cheered as the teachers were surprised at their schools with flowers, balloons and an oversized mock check for $1,000.
These STARS winners were nominated by their schools and will be honored at the Tomorrow Foundation Banquet on April 17, the REA/Board of Trustees Banquet on May 8, and at the Superintendent’s Convocation in August.
In May, two of the twelve winners will be selected to represent the district in the Region 10 Teacher of the Year competition.
Congratulations to all the winners, who represent some of this year’s best teachers in a district filled with excellent educators.
