Clear Creek ISD Teachers and Principals of the Year Announced
Honored at May 11 Luncheon
League City, Texas – The Rotary Clubs of Space Center, Seabrook and League City honored CCISD’s 44 campus teachers of the year at a luncheon at South Shore Habour Resort and Conference Center on Monday, May 11, 2015. The 2015 Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year were announced as was the CCISD Elementary and High School Principal of the Year.
Tonia Roque is the CCISD Elementary Teacher of the Year. The Landolt Elementary 4th grade teacher is a National Board Certified Teacher who started as a classroom teacher 20 years ago. She believes all students are capable of exceptional learning, but that not all students learn the same way. It is her mission to create learning opportunities to help all students succeed in the classroom.
Anthony Tran is the CCISD Secondary Teacher of the Year. The Clear Falls High School math teacher came to this country at 14-years old unable to speak English. He now teaches AP calculus, college prep math and geometry. Tran sees all his students as “gifted” and deserving of a quality, equal education. He believes academic success can only happen when students experience personal and emotional success.
Clear Creek ISD Congratulates both Tonia Roque and Anthony Tran as well as the other 2015 finalists: Miriam Hakam Bailey, Whitcomb Elementary 1st Grade Teacher, Tammy Verstrate, Stewart Elementary Bilingual Kindergarten Teacher, Teresa Cotton, Clear Springs High School Math Teacher and Lindy Goodwin, Clear Lake High School English Teacher.
Both Anthony Tran and Tonia Roque will now move forward to the regional and hopefully state selection process for Texas Teacher of the Year. They each received $1,500 from the Rotary Clubs of League City, Seabrook, and Space Center. Finalists received $500 each. Click here to learn more about the CCISD Teachers of the Year.
