Congratulations to Mrs. Norma Garcia: December 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.

December's Teacher of the Month is none other than Henry B. Gonzalez' Ms. Norma Garcia. Ms.Garcia is the true definition of a team player! Every single day, her 1st grade students grow academically as she enthusiastically taught the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics. Ms. Garcia is one of those teachers that not only earns the respect from her students, but also her peers. She is what you call a utility player as she is not only a 1st grade teacher, but also serves as a grade level chair, UIL Coach, and after-school tutor. 

Ms. Garcia is a successful and dedicated teacher, a sought after mentor, and a teacher that is loved equally by the staff and students. For all these reasons and more, Ms. Norma Garcia is Teacher of the Month. 

A segment will appear on iVision throughout the month of November detailing many more accomplishments of Ms. Garcia.  This month he will also appear on community media, news publications and the EPISD website throughout January 2022  A teacher will be selected each month through May 2022 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, Chick-fil-A 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, Liberty Barbecue, EPISD Spirit Ambassadors, and Peter Piper Pizza.
