Congratulations to Irving Teacher of the Month: December 15th – January 15th

Congratulations to Irving Teacher of the Month, Mrs. Daphne Hood, 7th/8th ELAR Teacher!

There is a quote that I love that I believe speaks to the very heart of the Irving Teacher of the Month, Mrs. Daphne Hood. The quote simply says this….“True teachers use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.” –Nikos Kazantzakis

Mrs. Hood is just that. A bridge that has seen many students cross over. Bridges take you from one point to another and this is what she does every day with her students. She is dedicated and committed to their growth and she never gives up. Her STAAR scores demonstrate her tenacity as well as her passion for education. She always volunteers her time to our school and she does it with a SMILE! Universal Academy Irving is proud to choose Mrs. Daphne Hood as our Teacher of the Month.
