What does Houston Loves Teachers mean to you?
Houston Loves Teachers is showing much-deserved love to educators around the city. I think this is really cool and important, as teachers are shaping the minds of future generations that will continue to drive H-Town forward.
How can the Houston Loves Teachers mural impact the atmosphere and sense of community on the schools campus?
I wish that this mural brightens the day of both teachers and students as they arrive on campus. On a deeper level, I hope that people will take a look at the mural and find hope in the fact that a former student created it alongside current students and teachers. With dedication and community, anything is possible.
