The Clear Creek School District is home to more than 2,700 exceptional teachers, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Greg Smith will be quick to tell you. And, he didn’t hesitate to brag about the educators at this year’s Teacher of the Year Luncheon sponsored by the Space Center, League City and Seabrook Rotary Clubs at South Shore Harbour Resort.

“Our teachers strive to provide engaging lessons in the classroom every day,” he told the crowd of some 300 community leaders and educators. “Our Campus Teachers of the Year represent the very best we have in CCISD. Their ability to connect with students and create personal learning opportunities have earned these 44 teachers this special honor.”

Prior to the luncheon, the field was narrowed down to six. Other finalists were Miriam Bailey of Whitcomb Elementary, Tammy Verstrate of Stewart Elementary, Teresa Cotton of Clear Springs High and Lindy Goodwin of Clear Lake High.

Others honored as Campus Teachers of the Year were:

The presidents of the three area Rotary Clubs that hosted the Teachers of the Year Luncheon, Scott Rainey of Space Center Rotary, Roy Green of League City Rotary and Chip Boteler of Seabrook Rotary, from left, confer as the crowd begins arriving for the annual event at South Shore Harbour Resort.
