Congratulations to the 2017 Sweetwater ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year - Monica Rogers!

Mrs. Rogers is a 6th grade teacher at Sweetwater Middle School and will represent SISD in the Region XIV Teacher of the Year contest. She was selected by a panel of Principals, Teachers and Parents from the District. 

Here is an excerpt from Mrs. Rogers' application, stating her philosophy of education:

"I believe teaching is an ever-changing, ever-growing, life-giving mission. My mission is not only about teaching content,  but it's about presence. I am constantly asking myself, "How did my presence in this one year of a child's life impact them?" My hope is that my presentation of the content and my involvement in the lives of my students engage them enough to make a difference in their academic success and in their outlook on life. My hope is that my presence encourages them to discover joy in learning and motivation to strive to be the best person they can be."

Mrs. Rogers has been a teacher with Sweetwater ISD for 8 years and is a graduate of Sweetwater High School. She is Sweetwater Strong!

Congratulations to the 2017 Sweetwater ISD Elementary Teacher of the Year - Carolyn Mullican!

Mrs. Mullican is a 2nd grade teacher at East Ridge Elementary and will represent SISD in the Region XIV Teacher of the Year contest. She was selected by a panel of Principals, Teachers and Parents from the District. 

Here is an excerpt from Mrs. Mullican's application, stating her philosophy of education:
"I am a teacher; this statement sounds so simple, yet it is so complex.  Teaching takes passion, commitment, perception, creativity, determination, and a strong work ethic.  I do not take this role lightly.  I understand that along with being a teacher comes great responsibility.  A responsibility I accepted twenty seven years ago.  Even after all these years, I still love this wonderful, rewarding, and challenging profession."

Mrs. Mullican has been a teacher with Sweetwater ISD for 27 years and is a graduate of Sweetwater High School. She is Sweetwater Strong!
