Helotes Educator of the Year and First Year Educator of the Year Announced

We are both thrilled and excited to announce our 2013-2014 Educator of the Year, Ms. Charla Robnett, Helotes Fourth Grade Teacher. This is Ms. Robnett’s 12th year teaching. She has taught kindergarten for five years, fifth grade for six years and this year is her first teaching fourth grade.  Ms. Robnett’s hobbies include reading, yoga and walking her cute dachshunds. She also enjoys trying out new restaurants in the area. Ms. Robnett’s favorite quote, the one she lives by in her classroom,  is  “Greatness-No excuses...No miracles...Just hard work!”

We are also very excited to announce our 2013-2014 First Year Educator of the Year, Ms. Jenica Rodriguez.  Ms. Rodriguez is no stranger to our campus. She student taught in kindergarten last year and was a long term substitute in third grade. Ms. Rodriguez states it has always been a life long dream to become an educator. When you enter Ms. Rodiguez’ class room, you are sure to hear the quote by Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” She says walking into Helotes Elementary makes her feel like she is in the happiest place on earth.

We will be celebrating our teachers at a NISD District Ceremony on March 4th at 6:30 pm at Brennan High School. We are very proud of our Educators of the Year!
