Fort Worth ISD Introduces 2020-21 Teaching Chairs of Excellence Peter Hernandez, Sam Rosen Elementary

 

(Friday, December 11, 2020) -- Once again, the Fort Worth ISD, with the generous support of community partners, recognizes outstanding teachers as the District’s Academic Chairs for Teaching Excellence

Modeled after the university-level Chair program, there are 16 categories of distinction. Each honoree receives the title of Chair for Teaching Excellence for one year as well as a $5,000 honorarium. 

Peter Hernandez of Sam Rosen Elementary School thought he was going to meet with a parent when his principal walked him outside on a recent afternoon. To Peter’s surprise, his family, colleagues, and students were there to announce that he had been named the 2020 Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson, LLP Chair for Teaching Excellence in Elementary Reading. 

Watch Peter’s surprise celebration in this video.
