Del Valle ISD held its annual new teacher luncheon on Friday, Aug. 11, at the Circuit on the Americas to introduce the new teachers to the Del Valle district and gave our overall teachers of the year a moment to share their experiences in the classroom.
The 2016-2017 teachers of the year shared their experiences, stories, successes and gave an inspiring speech to all who attended for their exemplary work during the previous school year. This year’s overall Elementary Teacher of the Year was Maria Luisa Fernandez from Baty Elementary School, and the overall Secondary Teacher of the Year was Leslie Daughtry from Daily Middle School.
Along with the new teachers, other attendees were Del Valle ISD Education Partners, DVISD Board of Trustees, campus principals and the executive cabinet members.
The luncheon concluded with a district bus tour around the DVISD area for all new teachers.
