Friday morning, May 21, the Perryton ISD staff gathered for the first time as a full group since August of 2019. Thanks to COVID-19, the traditional year-end meeting in 2020 didn’t happen and the staff met in smaller groups at the start of this school year.
Superintendent James Mireles and Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Maria Gomez Rocque recognized district retirees for both this year and last year. Staff members were also recognized for their years of service in 5-year increments for both years.
Also at the event, the 2021 Rotary Teacher of the Year was announced. The teacher, selected by the Perryton Rotary Club, earns a $1000 donation to their campus department and a $250 prize to the teacher. This year’s recipient was Sandy Woods.
Woods is a technology teacher at Perryton Junior High and is the sponsor for the school’s robotics team. The robotics team has brought a great deal of recognition to PISD through their competitions this year. Sandy has provided leadership and inspiration for this group and sets an example for others through her commitment to excellence.
Congratulations to Sandy Woods for the well-deserved honor and thank you to the Rotary Club for helping end this challenging year with a great honor.
