Congratulations to Garrett Barnard from Cross Timbers Middle School, who was named Educator of the Month! Here is what the person who nominated him had to say:

“I would like to nominate 7th grade ASPIRE math teacher Garrett Barnard for educator of the month. Our son has had increased struggles with focus since the start of the pandemic, and this year it started to show in his math performance. Mr. Barnard has ongoing, proactively communicated with us as parents, and has (on his own initiative) stayed after school ongoing to help our son get and stay on track with his studies. His nurturing and thoughtful approach has been an encouragement to our son, and our family, during what has been a difficult season.”

We appreciate his dedication, innovation, and tireless work on behalf of our kids. Thank you and congratulations, Mr. Barnard!
