The Spring Branch ISD Community Engagement team is excited to announce the inaugural Teachers Driving Success winner, Emily Swope from Bear Boulevard School for Early Learning!

Teachers Driving Success, a new monthly teacher appreciation program sponsored by SBISD partner Sterling McCall Group, recognizes an outstanding classroom teacher nominated by his/her principal with a luxury loaner vehicle for the month. 

In her nomination, Bear Boulevard Director Kimberly Hammer noted, “Mrs. Swope is a PK4 mainstream and ESL teacher who has gone above and beyond to make virtual teaching engaging to our youngest learners.

"She is in her first year of the Early Literacy Leadership Academy with Rice University, and has implemented her knowledge in the classroom to engage students and families in oral language and literacy development.

"She is also the Chair of the Bear Boulevard Sunshine/Fun Days Committee supporting staff morale across the campus!”

Mrs. Swope will have use of a 2021 Cadillac for the month of January, courtesy of Sterling McCall Group, in recognition of the exemplary ways she ‘drives success’ on her campus. Congratulations, Mrs. Swope!

The SBISD Community Engagement team looks forward to recognizing a Teachers Driving Success winner each month. Learn more about the program and find a list of each month’s winners here.
