Kudos to Jennifer Bloch for getting her first published article. Check out ASCD Express Publication: Ideas from the Field. When's your first book coming out?

- Irma Bauer

My kudos sometimes feel like they're repetitive or shallow, and sometimes they feel like all I do is look for my friends, department, or self. I hope these sound as genuine as I feel: My thanks to Heather Davis for being a person I can share my thoughts with and not be judged, toAlicia Ontiveros-Selestino for keeping me organized and making sure I think of things from lots of angles, to Natalie Ramirez for keeping me on the lighter side of life and picking at me when I deserve it, to Anndea Harrold for making me stretch as a teacher, and to Sofie Vastano for supporting my growth as a human. It has been a very blessed year.

- Lisa Smith

The amazing Grade 6 Team, all super heroes in their own right..All those involved have been awesome this year through all the trials and tribulations to ensure our students succeed. The support they show for each other is second to none...They are true educators

To Jennifer Bloch for joining the ASCD published authors from Hernandez..a great effort along withe presentation at ASCD..

- John Simpson

Kudo to the seventh grade ELA team, Sofie Vastano, and Anndrea Harrold for the awesome rotation lessons in the STAAR prep unit. It was well planned, instructionally effective, and fun. Great job.

MAJOR Kudos to La, Baeza, and Fowler for holding down room 621 while I was out. I am so blessed to have such a supportive, reliable team that I know will always do what is best for kids. I would be lost without y'all!

Please send kudos to Katelyn Barnhart, Kathleen Hoeber, and Briana Flores. Their outstanding work and tenacity in working with their students in these days leading up to STAAR is truly amazing. Your students respect and appreciate all you do for them. I am privileged to work with these awesome teachers!
