Harlandale ISD honors Teachers of the Year

Harlandale ISD kicked off National Teacher Appreciation Week with the annual Teacher of the Year Banquet held at Harlandale High School on May 7.

The special event honored 24 outstanding educators, who were selected as their campus Teacher of the Year for their passion and commitment to education.

HISD Superintendent Rey Madrigal congratulated all of the teachers in the room, acknowledging them for their excellence and leadership in the district.

“You are a leader in the education profession, and you provide outstanding service to the Harlandale community,” he said. “Our Harlandale ISD family knows how important you are to our students, and we value each and every one of you. The Teacher of the Year recognition affirms that you truly do make a difference.  I want to thank you for everything that you do for our students.”

After enjoying a delicious dinner, catered by Nicha’s Comida Mexicana, Superintendent Madrigal and Board Members Juan Mancha and Ricardo Moreno presented every teacher with the Harlandale ISD Silver Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching.

District Teacher of the Year Evelyn Bushart was also honored with a special plaque and heartfelt video.

Holding back tears, Bushart graciously accepted her plaque and took the opportunity to thank her colleagues.

“I really feel honored and humbled to receive this recognition. As teachers, I know we work hard to ensure that our students are in an environment that empowers them to succeed in the classroom,” she said. “No matter what our circumstances are, we try to make the best out of everything, and we do it with love, passion and dedication. So, I really want to thank you for everything you do for our children, their parents and the community.”

She asked them all to stand up, introduce themselves and offer each other a few words of advice and encouragement, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.

“I want you to know that you are amazing, you are wonderful and truly are making an impact in the community,” she said. “Thank you for everything you do, I love you all.”
