You’ve probably heard of it. The Big Give. It’s a national effort to build support for nonprofits—such as SST—so important work gets done to make our community a better place to live.

This year all San Antonio SST campuses, as well as Corpus Christi, will participate. The Big Give is a 24 hour day of giving that will take place from midnight to midnight on May 4.

The Big Give works because people who believe in the work of the nonprofit share their personal experience through social media and emails. SST parents, teachers, staff, students and alumni have great stories to share about SST and why each believes in the work we do.

Who will you invite to the Big Give? Begin building your list of grandparents, extended family members, friends and others you want to know about SST.  Think about your experience with SST and how SST makes a difference. Then a few days before May 4, send your email and invite them to give. For more information, contact Mrs. Brown or Ms. Lighteard at SST-Discovery.

Congratulations to SST-Discovery Teachers of the Year

We are pleased to announce the 2017 Teachers of the Year (TOTY)  for SST.  Both Ms. Wall and Ms. Johnson will now represent SST at the ESC Region 20 level.  The TOTY selected at the regional level will compete for the Texas Teacher of the Year in the fall and the Texas Teacher of the Year will compete for the US TOTY.  The 2016 National Teacher of the Year was announced last week in Washington, D. C. with festivities including an event at the White House.


2017 SST Elementary Teacher of the Year

Amber Johnson, who has taught PK, K, and 2nd grade, is the 2017 School of Science and Technology Elementary Teacher of the Year. She also serves as a 
reading interventionist for grad
es K-5, Gifted a
nd Talented Coach for grades K-3 
and is the Response to Intervention Coordinator for K-8. She graduated from Texas Tech University with a Masters of Elementary Education Degree, and currently teaches at SST-Discovery in San Antonio. Ms. Johnson shared this about teaching:“The most rewarding part of teaching to me are the positive relationships that I build with students, their families, and my co-workers. Building relationships with my students shows them that I care and respect them as individuals, but it also allows me to help instill a passion for learning in them. When our community of teachers, parents, and students work together all of our students can have their best possible outcomes.”
 2017 SST Secondary Teacher of the Year
Corinne Wall is the 2017 Secondary School of Science and Technology Teacher of the Year. She currently is a teacher at SST-Discovery and teaches eighth grade math as well as serving as the math department chair and a mentor teacher. Ms. Wall earned a BS from Texas A&M at College Station and a MA from Texas State University. Ms. Wall shared this about being a teacher: “I am very passionate about what I do. My reward is watching the potential I see in my students come to fruition. I often hear people speak about our future as if the next generations is going to leave us in a state of uncertainty, and as a teacher, I get a front row seat to tomorrow’s leaders. I get to shape and inspire them. Watching a student come to the realization that there’s something beyond what they thought there were capable of—that there’s a norm outside the failure they’ve experienced in the past—that’s my reward.”
