March Teacher Of The Month: Cheryl Taylor

Each month, Marshall ISD celebrates the outstanding contributions of our campus faculty to the overall educational experience of our students. These professionals work countless extra hours at home, on weekends, and over holiday breaks with one focus in mind -- to make MISD and their campus Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong for our students.

The Teacher of the Month for March 2018 at William B. Travis Elementary School, as selected by Principal, Mr. Loyed Jones, is Cheryl Taylor, second-grade teacher!

"We are proud to announce Cheryl Taylor as our Teacher of the Month at William B. Travis," said Mr. Jones, in his nomination of Ms. Taylor. "She creates a structured environment to allow students to excel that might struggle elsewhere. She promotes and celebrates effort in the classroom, and she collaborates and works well with her team. Parents are appreciative of her communication and love for their child, and she is the first staff member to arrive each morning and will prepare coffee for her colleagues. We are proud to have her represent us as our Teacher of the Month for March."
