LISD Announces 2021 Campus Teachers of the Year

2021 Campus Teachers of the Year

Lockhart Independent School District administrators traveled from campus to campus today, surprising the 2021 Teachers of the year for each campus and notifying them of their selection. As the team walked into the classrooms of the teachers, they were met with varying reactions from total shock to tears to squeals of joy. Students were also surprised by the announcements and showed a lot of pride and joy in their teacher being chosen for the honor. 

Last year, due to the school building closures and remote instruction caused by the pandemic, the district had to arrange Zoom meetings to surprise teachers with the good news. District leaders were excited to return to the in-person surprises and being able to once again include students in the joyous celebrations. 

Campus Teachers of the Year are nominated by and voted upon by their campus peers. Because of this, the honor holds an even more special meaning in the hearts of winners.

The 2021 Campus Teachers of the Year winners are:

Jasmyn Corley
Alma Brewer Strawn Elementary School

Kristin Scott 
Plum Creek Elementary School

Jocelyn Aguillon
Carver Early Education Center

Roy Ruis
Bluebonnet Elementary School

Lorena Portillo
Clear Fork Elementary School

Isabel Aguilar
Navarro Elementary School

Amie Gonzales
Lockhart Junior High School

Leopoldo Vazquez
Lockhart High School

“This is easily one of my favorite days of the year. We celebrate the excellence of these teachers who are fully committed to ‘UnLocking Potential’ of our students to help them truly thrive,” said Superintendent Mark Estrada. “This honor has a special meaning during the most difficult school year teachers have ever faced. We are proud of all of our teachers for stepping up to the challenge, and we are particularly proud of these 2021 Campus Teachers of the Year!”

Next, teachers will participate in an interview process as they are considered for the 2021 LISD District Elementary Teacher of the Year and LISD Secondary Teacher of the Year. Each of the Campus Teachers of the Year will be honored in May at the district’s employee awards celebration. There, the district will announce who among them will serve as the LISD District Teachers of the Year, competing at the regional level with other school districts’ nominees. 

Congratulations to all of the winners!
