Meghan Faulkner, a remarkable First Grade Teacher at AP Beutel Elementary, is the focus of the Teacher Spotlight Award. She loves the challenge of growing a non-reader into a reader and seeing the students’ eagerness and excitement to learn. Mrs. Morris, the Beutel Principal, shared that her students are always engaged because she makes learning fun while having high expectations. This is Mrs. Faulkner’s thirteenth year with Brazosport ISD, but her family has a personal legacy with the district since someone from her immediate family has been teaching with us for the past sixty-one years. These include:
- Grandfather Robert Kerr- Principal at Clute Elementary for 25 years
- Grandmother Lois Kerr- Librarian at Roberts for 28
- Father Tommy Kerr- 31 years at Velasco and Freeport Intermediate
- Mother Debbie Kerr- 28 years at Jane Long and Beutel
- Aunt Sandra Smith- 30 years at Brazosport High
Mrs. Faulkner is one of many great teachers in BISD that inspire students to do more than anyone thought they could!
