Teacher Of The Year
Maria Wilson received her degree from UTD, and has taught for 24 years. She has experience in 3rd, 7th, 8th, and 9th grades, and has taught bilingual pre-k for 11 years. When asked, Ms. Wilson said, the most rewarding thing about working with Pre-K is when she was corrected by her students about routines and procedures that were missed due to the change of schedules; it lets her know that they are paying attention, and learning. Her best advice is, "always remember children learn by the examples set by the adults around them, be a good role model." Her philosophy for teaching is "love every student and be patient with them". Her colleagues refer to her as kind, caring, and with a genuine compassion for students; and that is why Ms. Wilson is our Teacher Of The Year.
