Open Carry Gun Law Reminder

Dear Parents and Guardians,

HB 910 went into effect on January 1, 2016 which now allows a license holder to openly carry a handgun in a shoulder or belt holster rather than concealing the weapon.  However, under state law, school buildings will continue to be prohibited areas.  Pursuant to this, regardless of whether a weapon is carried concealed or openly holstered, it will not be allowed inside a school or facility.   For the safety of our students, staff, and visitors; our schools and facility will remain weapon-free.  Should you have questions or concerns, please contact your campus administrators.   Thank you for your support on this matter.

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 grades K-5, Gifted and 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.”
