Maria Rendon, a teacher at Anson Jones middle school, explains her passion for teaching English Language Arts (ELA) in traditional public schools to Social Media Marketing students at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).
A teacher not only educates a student about academic subjects, but also serves as a role model and even mentor. Public schools educate all students and the needs are far and wide. During National Teacher Appreciation Week, we're featuring a few stories that include the personal journeys of teachers. Their experiences help define their character and provide a toolbox rich in wisdom, benefitting their work and students.
Current events, stories, and features from the San Antonio-area's seventeen Independent School Districts.
