In an effort to recognize teachers for the challenging, but critically important work they do, we created the Dream Makers Banquet which honors academic and teaching excellence. The Top 10 graduates of the FHS senior class identify their Dream Maker; a teacher who through their teaching, guidance and care, have helped to make their dreams come true. It has been described by guests as an “amazing event” that allows students to share how their teachers have inspired and encouraged them in their academic and/or personal lives.
At FISD, our teachers are our most critical asset. Teachers make a significant impact on the lives of the students they teach. I only wish that every single teacher could hear from at least one student how they have made a difference in that student’s life. I believe that teachers work so hard every day on the task at hand to do what is best for kids, that they don’t realize the impact they have on students’ lives, not to mention the future of our nations democracy. I truly believe the teaching profession contributes more to the future of our society than any other single profession and I cannot say thank you enough to our teachers. Teachers, please know that you are appreciated and respected for all that you do.
