This is the image for the news article titled 2016-17 BISD Teachers of the Year The 2016-17 Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year were named for the first time during the annual BISD Employee Recognition Dinner event on May 12, 2016. Congratulations Elementary Teacher of the Year Brenda Oros from Madge Griffith Elementary School and Secondary Teacher of the Year Susan Williams from Freeport Intermediate School.
 
Brenda Oros and Susan Williams both faced challenges when they were in school and each believe that a teacher made all of the difference in their lives. Brenda was a bilingual students, with little experience in speaking English. “The struggles that I brought to school with me were no match for the passion my bilingual elementary teachers had for teaching,” recalls Oros. With an undiagnosed learning disability, Williams encountered many stumbling blocks until she met her 10th grade Spanish teacher who convinced her that she had “a talent for foreign language and not so gently pushed me out of my shell.” Both teachers have high expectations for their students and believe that building a positive relationship with each child is the foundation for learning. Ms. Oros wants her 3rd graders to know that she is “able to see the great potential that lies in each one of them,” and that their “hard work will pay off.”  Ms. Williams works to “motivate and encourage” her 7th and 8th grade students in her Spanish classes to “conquer their fears,” to go on to be successful, productive adults. BISD Elementary Teacher of the Year Brenda Oros and BISD Secondary Teacher of the Year Susan Williams are making huge impacts every day in the lives of children in BISD. These two dedicated educators are truly setting the standard for education in their schools, our district and throughout the state! Oros and Williams will represent Brazosport ISD this summer in the Houston area’s 2016-17 Region IV Education Service Center’s Teacher of the Year Competition.
