Katy, TX News (August 6, 2015) – Katy ISD’s 2015 District-wide Elementary Teacher of the Year Christina Dismuke was named the Region IV Elementary Teacher of the Year last night at the annual awards ceremony. Dismuke was selected out of 94 nominees from 47 area school districts.
Dismuke teaches second grade at Morton Ranch Elementary and is a master teacher, second grade Team Leader and Lead Mentor on campus. She is not only involved in the classroom, but also in the community where she spends time volunteering for her church and regularly attends her students’ extracurricular activities.
“Mrs. Dismuke is truly one of the most gifted teachers with whom I have worked in my sixteen years in education,” said Deb Hubble, principal at Morton Ranch Elementary. “It is no exaggeration to say that teachers of all age levels flock to her classroom to observe and learn from her. She masterfully exemplifies what elementary education should be about.”
Dismuke is one of four Katy ISD teachers to be named a Region IV Teacher of the Year in the past 30 years, including Barbara Sue Walker (1989), Theresa Fallwell (2008), and Janie Spies (2014). She will move on as the Region IV Elementary Teacher of the Year to compete against the other Education Service Centers for a finalist spot at the state level, and ultimately an opportunity to be named Texas Teacher of the Year.
