Assistant Principal Chera Bessire is one of 20 administrators to be named Region Assistant Principal of the Year by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association.
Chera Bessire, assistant principal at Bennett Elementary, recently was recognized as a Region Assistant Principal of the Year by the Texas Elementary Principals and Supervisors Association (TEPSA), which recognizes assistant principals for their commitment to student learning as evidenced by exceptional school leadership.
Bessire is one of 20 administrators in Texas recognized for the peer-based award.
“These assistant principals play a critical role in setting high standards and ensuring the day-to-day success of students on their campus,” said TEPSA Executive Director Harley Eckhart.
One of the 20 administrators will be selected as the 2017 National Assistant Principal of the Year for Texas. Supported by Horace Mann, the national award recognizes leaders who are committed to excellence through programs designed to meet the academic and social needs of all students; have firmly established community ties with parents and local business organizations; show strong educational leadership by setting high expectations for school staff and students; and exhibit exceptional leadership in a particular school program.
The 20 honorees will be recognized at the TEPSA awards reception June 14 at the Austin Renaissance Hotel.
Congratulations to Bessire for being selected for such a prestigious award!
