Congratulations to Mrs. Angelica Camarillo: March Teacher of the Month

Eagle Pass Independent School District has partnered with local businesses throughout our city to highlight the Teacher of the Month program, which honors educators who have made a difference in our community.  The program recognizes outstanding kindergarten, elementary, junior high, and high school teachers in Eagle Pass, Texas.

March's Teacher of the Month is none other than CC Winn High School's, Mrs. Angelica Camarillo. Mrs. Camarillo is not only the English Department Head at her campus, but she also serves as a teacher, guide, motivator, and friend to all those around her! She is that special type of teacher that plants seeds of knowledge and passion  that are used to cultivate a love of the written word. 

Mrs. Camarillo's mission is to cultivate life-long learners and challenge each and every one of her students to reach their full potential. She designs lessons that nurture a learning community and allow each student to become a LEADER! Her dedication cannot be measured.

As Department Head, she motivates teachers to volunteer their time to ensure each student's success; in addition, she organizes scholarships to award both Winn and EPHS seniors on behalf of the English Department. There is not something Mrs. Camarillo will not do to help her students or any staff member. She has dedicated 24 years of her life to her profession and prides herself on creating productive and successful citizens. For all these reasons and more, Mrs. Angelica Camarillo is Teacher of the Month. 

A segment will appear on iVision throughout the month of June detailing many more accomplishments of Mrs. Camarillo.  This month she will also appear on community media, news publications and the EPISD website throughout March 2021.  A teacher will be selected each month through May 2021 for a total of eight (8) honorees.  The “Teacher of the Month” will be chosen based on educational achievements in the classroom, community contributions and innovative programs and techniques used by the teacher. The “Teacher of the Month” will receive a certificate of recognition and will be featured on iVision, local media news, news publications and radio broadcasting.  Additionally, each “Teacher of the Month” will receive donations from local businesses.

Each T.O.M is receiving a “V.I.T (Very Important Teacher) Parking Pass”, a jean voucher for a month, Whataburger Gift Card, and Class Cash to purchase class room supplies. Additionally, each “Teacher of the Month” will receive donations from local businesses.  Thank You Border Federal Credit Union, Ashley Furniture, 1212 Chisolm Group, EPISD Spirit Ambassadors, and Peter Piper Pizza.
