Superintendent’s Video Message Celebrates “Teaching Moments”

“Anyone in attendance at the recent Academic Chairs for Teaching Excellence luncheon, had to be impressed with the 16 teachers who were honored,” says Fort Worth ISD Superintendent Kent P. Scribner in his November video message to teachers and staff.

The teachers shared with attendees the reasons they teach. Their stories spoke to their commitment to connect with every child.

Dr. Scribner has included in this video one such story. It’s about a very young student who, for months, seemed to resist all efforts to reach him.

Watch and enjoy this touching anecdote as told by John T. White Leadership Academy teacher Julissa Gómez.

As Dr. Scribner says in the video, “In teaching, you never know when a great lesson will present itself.”
