Tyler ISD Announces 2013 Teachers of the Year

Tyler ISD Announces 2013 Teachers of the YearTyler ISD Announces 2013 Teachers of the Year
Tyler – Tyler ISD announced the 2013 Teachers of the Year at the annual Teacher of the Year Banquet held Tuesday, May 14 at Harvey Convention Center. The District honored Campus Teachers of the Year before naming Griffin Elementary School Science Lab Teacher Kimberly Whaley as Elementary Teacher of the Year, and Robert E. Lee High School Pre-AP Biology Teacher Elgin Johnson as Secondary Teacher of the Year.

To celebrate the dedication of Tyler ISD’s outstanding team of teachers, the theme of this year’s Teacher of the Year Banquet was “Legacy of Caring.”

With more than 14 years of teaching experience, Mrs. Whaley says her passion for teaching began at a very early age.

“Even as a child setting up a classroom in our garage where I taught my sister and her friend, or my stuffed animals when no one else would cooperate, I knew I would spend my life teaching others,” Mrs. Whaley said. “Supporting children and their families through their educational journey gives me great joy. I am driven by the needs of children and finding creative and engaging ways to help them reach their goals.”

Mr. Johnson has spent the past 14 years teaching at Robert E. Lee High School. He credits his family and faith for his success as an educator.

“I truly believe that I am a teacher because that is the way God wants to use me at this point in my life. I have had the good fortune to be around people my entire life that knew the value of education and learning,” Mr. Johnson said. “Education is not limited to within the walls of the schools, but extends to the entire community. The charge we have as educators is to create and cultivate meaningful relationships with not only students, but parents and the community.”

Twenty-nine teachers were named Campus Teachers of the Year. Criteria for selection of both the campus and District Teachers of the Year included, among other items: playing an active and useful role in their community, commitment to the teaching profession through continuous improvement, and lessons that creatively engage and inspire students to achieve high academic standards.

More than 500 guests attended the banquet, including Tyler ISD staff, administrators, teachers, sponsors and members of the community. The District winners will compete at the regional level this summer.

John Tyler Advances to State Quarterfinals

ALLEN – John Tyler started off slow against Frisco’s Racoons Friday night at the $60 million Allen Eagle Stadium, but all’s well that ends well as the Lions rally to a 45-28 win and advance to the Class 4A Div I Quarterfinal round.
Frisco’s wing T ball control offense created some assignment problems early for John Tyler, racking up 230 yards of offense, controlling the clock and staking to a 21-10 lead with just over three minutes remaining in the first half. However, with 50 seconds left in the half, Darion Flowers hauled in a six-yard pass from Greg Ward. The TD was John Tyler’s second of the half and cut the deficit down to only four points going into halftime.

After the half, CUJO seemed to have found it’s stride taking six plays to march 62 yards before Ward found Fred Ross who dashed the final 29 yards after the catch to put the Lions ahead for the first time in the contest, 24-21.
CUJO’s defense made some adjustments as well, forcing the first three-and-out against the Racoons all night and forcing the only punt. Again, six plays later the Lions found paydirt and stretched out the lead 31-21, this time coming on Ward’s second rushing TD of the night, a 20-yard run. Frisco mounted one additional drive consuming over eight minutes of clock time, resulting in a score to cut into the Lions lead, 31-28, but that proved to be the final productive possession for the Racoons.

The fourth quarter belonged to the Lions who added scores on two DeQuante Woods runs of eight and 21 respectively to seal the victory, 45-28.
John Tyler advances to face Frisco’s district rival, Frisco Centennial who won their matchup over Red Oak 40-14.
The two teams will face off 7:30 Friday at Ennis Stadium.
