The 2020 Teacher Appreciation Week looks a lot different than it normally does, but the entire Royal ISD community appreciates all of its superhero teachers and paraprofessionals. Each and every one of you makes a profound difference in the life of your students, which is especially important during this time of uncertainty.
You had to accept the goodbyes to your students that were lost and transition quickly from your normal teaching practice to remote learning. All of you have done this while juggling the effects of COVID-19 on your family and personal lives as well.
I am not surprised by the speed, innovation, creativity, brilliance, sensitivity and care with which you have accomplished this.
For all of that and so much more, we thank you and we salute you. To honor all of the educators at Royal ISD, we posted several questions to our students about why their teachers are amazing.

She is VERY nice and kind.
She not only teaches but she cares if her students understand what she teaches. Since I've been home I've probably talked to he more than I did at school by phone, text or email. Not once but every time I've called she answers. Just talking to her builds the confidence that I have when I'm in her classroom and she tells me "great job" or "I know you can do it." She encourages me to believe in myself even though I am not at school. I really miss her.
