The Sugar Land Rotary honored Fort Bend ISD’s District Teachers of the Year and other finalists during a Teacher Appreciation recognition program held at a recent Rotary meeting. The Rotary has recognized exceptional teachers through this special program for more than 17 years.

On May 8, Sugar Land Rotarians welcomed the teachers and their campus administrators to the event, expressing their gratitude to these remarkable teachers. Charles E. Dupre, Superintendent of Schools, introduced each honoree, who then shared what they enjoy most about teaching.

Honored were the FBISD District Teachers of the Year: Johnny DeJesus, Elementary Teacher of the Year from Heritage Rose Elementary; and Walter Benavides, Secondary Teacher of the Year from McAuliffe Middle School.  Also honored were finalists:  (elementary) Amanda Castro, Schiff Elementary; Amanda Levermann, Settlers Way Elementary; Amber Mann, Jones Elementary; Rosa Martinez, Parks Elementary; (secondary) Shakira Guillory, Progressive High School; John Glenn Ramon, Hightower High School; and Chelsea Waite, Bowie Middle School.  Unable to attend were Terri Court from Meadows Elementary, and Caroline Bartlett from Kempner High School.

Each teacher received a gift card from the Rotary in appreciation of their outstanding efforts as a teacher, as well as their dedication to the profession and their students.
