Congratulations to Mr. Norman Carreon: February 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.

February's Teacher of the Month is none other than Eagle Pass Junior High School's, Mr. Norman Carreon. Mr. Carreon is a superb teacher that has passion about his craft! His method of teaching is like no other. He has well thought out lessons that captivate the minds of his students and he is always looking for ways to improve his strategies. 

His room is like entering a whole other world reared for teaching and learning!  He is the kind of teacher that exemplifies no child left behind! He is kind, patient, and caring towards all his students. He makes all his students feel welcomed and he is always willing to help and lead his fellow teachers as well. He always shares with the department his lesson plans, materials, and resources. The Math Department at EPJ constantly gets emails from Mr. Carreon on strategies to use in their classrooms.

 Mr. Carreon is quick to volunteer, lend a hand to anyone around him and for all these reasons and more, Mr. Norman Carreon is Teacher of the Month. 

A segment will appear on iVision throughout the month of June detailing many more accomplishments of Mr. Carreon.  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.
