HCDE Names Educator of Year Finalists

Finalists for “Teacher of the Year” as well as “Educational Aide of the Year” have been named at Harris County Department of Education’s four Special Schools. The two honorees will be named on May 13 from 6-7 p.m. at HCDE, 6300 Irvington Blvd. The four HCDE schools provide three specialized education programs and feature individualized learning and small-group instruction in highly structured classes. Programs are for students with intellectual, developmental or behavioral disorders; troubled or adjudicated youth; and recovering youth.  
“We’re very proud of all our educators who work extremely hard with our special populations students,” HCDE Superintendent James Colbert said. “We celebrate all their successes, and this event gives us pause to think about all they accomplish on behalf of the children of greater Harris County.”
