Frenship Independent School District extends congratulations to Haley Beardemphl, second grade teacher Crestview Elementary School, for her selection as this year’s Region 17 Elementary Teacher of the Year.
As the award winner of the Region 17 Elementary Teacher of the Year, Beardemphl will represent the region on the state level as the 2016 Texas Teacher of the Year nominee. State winners will be announced at the Texas Teacher of the Year awards ceremony in October.
“I was delighted to learn of Haley’s well deserved accomplishment of being named the Region 17 Elementary Teacher of the Year,” stated Dr. Michelle McCord, Frenship ISD Interim Superintendent. “She is a dedicated educator with a heart of service. We are thankful to have her on our team.”
Beardemphl is a six-year veteran teacher at Crestview and has taught second grade her entire career. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Multidisciplinary Studies from Texas Tech University in 2009 and began teaching at Crestview the following school year.
Prior to her selection as Region 17 Elementary Teacher of the Year, Beardemphl was selected as the Crestview Elementary Teacher of the Year in April and the Frenship ISD Elementary Teacher of the Year in May.
“To say Haley Beardemphl is a dedicated teacher is an understatement,” added Stacy Davis, Crestview principal. “Haley exudes characteristics of passion, commitment, enthusiasm, honesty, loyalty, and most important, love. She truly is a gift for teaching students.”
Representatives from Region 17 will recognize Beardemphl for this honor during Frenship ISD’s annual Convocation on Monday, August 17.
