Ms. Sayman Honored with Teacher of the Year Award

Glen Park Elementary is proud to annouce Ms. Sayman, 5th grade teacher, as the 2018-2019 Campus Teacher of the Year! This honor was determined by the campus teaching staff and she will be recognized at the FWISD Teacher of the Year celebration in the spring. 

Ms. Sayman graduated from Dallas Christian College with a degree in Intercultural Studies. She worked and lived in the Amazon River Region of Brazil for four years after college. She has worked with kids for twelve years, including teaching for six years. Ms. Sayman has been a teacher at Glen Park for the past three years. 

She enjoys spending time with friends and family, reading, watching movies, and likes doing anything adventurous. Ms. Sayman is very involved in her church and teaches Sunday School in the first grade class.

Ms. Sayman says that her favorite part of teaching is giving students the confidence and skills to live life to the fullest. She says, "There's nothing better than watching a kid realize that they are capable of accomplishing goals they never dreamed they could. There are "light bulb" moments when a student finally understands something and it's like a whole new world has opened up for them. I love what I do because it's not just a job - it's an amazing opportunity to give kids hope for their future through learning."

Congratulations to Ms. Sayman on receiving this well-deserved honor!
