To Our IDEA Educators During Teacher Appreciation Week



We are excited to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week at IDEA Public Schools.  At IDEA, we champion this time as a time for special recognition and celebration of our educators across our Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, and Austin regions.  While every week is a time to be grateful for IDEA teachers, we want to say, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all that you do to ensure every IDEA student is receiving the education they deserve.  You are the true super heroes.     

It has been an exciting few weeks here at IDEA Public Schools.  Five of our high schools were recently recognized in the top 25 most challenging in the nation by The Washington Post; 100% of our 674 graduating seniors recently revealed their college choice at College Signing Day in front of excited and proud staff, friends, family, and community members; and our Royal Readers are gearing up to celebrate their amazing, year-long reading achievements at celebrations and chat with a bestselling author.

While all of IDEA is beaming with pride for our scholars, we know that none of this success would be possible without the passion, hard work, patience, dedication and the love of our teachers.  It is because of every IDEA educator, Pre-K through 12, that we as an organization are building a legacy of student achievement and College For All. 

We hope that you have enjoyed this week, and that your campus, your family, and your students have made you feel appreciated.  On behalf of everyone at IDEA Public Schools, we thank you for the work that you do, and are so happy that you are part of our Team & Family.

If you’re reading this and are not an IDEA educator, we’d love for you to consider joining our family!  Click here to learn more about career opportunities at IDEA.
