Katy ISD 2017 - 2018 Teachers of the Year

Congrats to all of the amazing educators who were honored for their efforts during the 2017-2018 school year! This school year has brought Katy teachers many challenges with the tragedy of Harvey. Whether they had to relocate their classrooms or re-plan their curriculum our Katy teachers brought their best to our students when they needed the normalcy of education the most. Is your favorite teacher listed below?
