It's obviously their passion and for students to be that in tune with just writing in and letting us know that this means that much to them. It's a big deal
Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 06, 2016
Tuesday, November 29th, Spring Branch ISD teachers Lorenza Garay and Danielle Potts were honored as Stars in the Classroom by First Community Credit Union, FCCU and the Houston Texans. Linebacker Brian Cushing visited their school, Ridgecrest Elementary, to present the teachers and nominating students with prizes and a $500 donation to their school district.
"It's obviously their passion and for students to be that in tune with just writing in and letting us know that this means that much to them. It's a big deal," Cushing said.
During the ceremony Brian had a Q&A session with the students. He stressed the importance of staying in school and shared his educational experience with them. The students were beyond excited to have a Houston Texans player in their school.
Stars in the Classroom is a partnership between FCCU and the Houston Texans that honors 10 teachers all over Houston for making a difference at their schools. Students nominate their teacher and talk about why they have been an important figure in their lives. This year, Stars in the Classroom received around 400 nominations. Nominations are currently closed, but will open again in August 2017.
