30 Reasons why I’m Thankful to live in Round Rock
Day #16: Teachers of Round Rock

Growing up, my parents were both teachers – I saw the good and the bad – therefore, I was bound and determined to NOT become a teacher.  I just honestly don’t have the patience for it.  But there are some wonderful men & women here in Round Rock that do.  And they are incredible teachers.

We have been a part of the Round Rock ISD for almost 6 years now and we have been so blessed to have had some amazing teachers.  I tear up thinking about the impact some have had on my children’s lives.  I hear countless stories of teachers staying late for their kids, going above & beyond to make sure their classroom is a fun learning environment.

Most recently, I was a part of a very fun learning environment that had an entire class of second graders excited and on fire!

The Patsy Sommer Elementary School second grade teachers challenged their children to learn more about Round Rock.  Teams had to pick a Round Rock landmark, visit it, and then teach everyone else about it – be the “tour guide” of the landmark.

They visited everything from Downtown Round Rock to the Dell Diamond, to Lone Star Bakery.  The results were AMAZING!!

When they presented their projects, they were excited to tell me everything they had learned but I was more impressed with how well they portrayed their landmarks – they put a ton of effort into these projects.

But who motivated them – got them excited about learning??  Their TEACHERS!  As a daughter of teachers, I know how hard of a job that can be.  I know the sacrifice that most teachers make – to make a difference in childrens’ lives. And I am humbled by that.
