Earlier this year, the Little Elm ISD Education Foundation asked students across the District to submit a letter nominating their favorite teacher, librarian, or instructional coach. The letter had to explain why their nominee is special and how they Engage, Equip, and Empower them to reach their full potential.
In February, the foundation executive board members spent a day reading letters submitted by students. They narrowed it down to nine letters by using a grading rubric. Monday, March 4 during the school day, foundation board members visited the student authors at their campuses. Together, they surprised the recipients for an emotional celebration.
Students, parents and honored teachers will all be celebrated at the Boots and Bling Gala, the LEISDEF's fundraising dinner. The event is Friday, April 12 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Little Elm High School. All the money raised from this event will go toward innovative teacher grants.
