2016 Employees of the Year announced

GCISD administrators led a "surprise" patrol to various campuses and departments to announce this year's honored staff members. Third-Grade Dove Elementary School Teacher Laura Follett was named the GCISD Elementary Teacher of the Year. Grapevine Middle School Math Teacher Kelley Willmann was named GCISD's Secondary Teacher of the Year. Leslie Krawetzke, operational services, was named GCISD Paraprofessional of the Year.
  
In addition to the district-level Elementary Teacher, Secondary Teacher and Paraprofessional of the Year, district leaders also celebrated departmental employees of the year on their surprise tour. This year's winners are pictured below. Campus teachers and campus/department paraprofessionals of the year also will be honored during special celebrations with their colleagues at their schools or departments.
 
GCISD employees represent excellence in teaching/work abilities, innovative practices, positive relationships and communication, and leadership. Congratulations to all these outstanding GCISD winners!
