Schools across Dallas ISD just celebrated their teachers of the year.
The educators were recognized in different ways at each campus, but all of them received a box with goodies and helpful items.
Each of them are eligible to apply to be the district teacher of the year. A selection committee will select nine finalists from three categories by campus type and school level. Finalists and winners will be honored in the spring.
Here are the teachers at schools in our neighborhood.
