Leopard Spotlight (March 25-30)

GISD Teacher of the Month - Shirley Gibbs

Shirley Gibbs, GHS Spanish teacher, is the GISD Secondary Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Gibbs has impacted young lives for 25 years, not only in teaching a second language but also in being a role model for her students. Gibbs relates to her students on many levels, and has made it her goal to set an example for her students and to teach each of them that they can achieve greatness in their own lives. Watch the video to hear more about her story. We are proud to call Mrs. Gibbs a Leopard!

GISD Employee of the Month - Charlotte Williams

The GISD Employee of the Month is Mrs. Charlotte Williams, GHS Secretary. Although we were only lucky enough to gain Mrs. Williams at GISD three years ago, she has worked in schools for a total of 22 years. Charlotte does an exceptional job of being a welcoming presence when parents, visitors, students, and staff enter the front office of the high school. With a campus of nearly 1,000 students and staff plus countless parents and visitors every day, the "job" is constant. However, Mrs. Williams still manages to make it a priority to get to know the students personally and to help every visitor with top notch customer service. Thank you Mrs. Williams!
