Google & Brownsville ISD are Coming MONDAY DEC. 1st

They are coming to see how we have defied the critics, defied the odds, and began the journey to seamlessly integrate tech into how we teach. I know it has been a journey of exploration, hard-work, frustrations, failures, and victories.

Just know, December 1st a small army of curious minds will be coming to see you (not the District, not any surrounding schools, YOU!!!) integrate technology.

Folks, this is just the beginning! Congrats to all of you for being what I said was the premiere school in the it appears your efforts are catapulting you to premiere in the region and state...Wow...just Wow!

I'm so proud to showcase our open, growth, risk-taking culture along with YOUR passion for teaching and meeting the needs of the modern glad to have the opportunity to be on the ride with you.

In awe...steve
