Whitehouse Independent School District announces its Teachers of the Year for the 2013-14 school year.

Christine Workman has been named Whitehouse ISD Elementary Teacher of the Year. Workman has 17 years teaching experience and has been with Whitehouse ISD for 5 years. She currently teaches third grade math and science at Brown Elementary. Workman serves on several educational committees for Brown Elementary as well as developing curriculum guidelines and teaching strategies. “My goal as an educator is to understand that my students have basic needs that must be met first before I can teach anything,” Workman said. “I want my students to feel that I’m their coach that cheers them on during difficult and easy times in the classroom.”

Cynthia Harris has been named Whitehouse ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year. Harris has been with Whitehouse ISD for four years and currently teaches seventh grade science at Whitehouse Junior High. During her time at Whitehouse, Harris has been very involved with student council, UIL competitions and athletics, among other activities and projects. “Each students is an individual and therefore learns in a different way,” Harris said. “My desire, above all, is to make an impact on my students’ life for the better.”

“It is truly an honor to recognize these two wonderful teachers,” said Daniel DuPree, WISD superintendent. “We are very lucky to have these two teachers here at Whitehouse ISD.”
