2018 Spring ISD Teachers of the Year
Spring ISD Teachers, Administrators and Support Staff Honored During Annual Employee Recognition Banquet
Northgate Crossing Elementary Teacher Ladell Whitfield came to the Spring ISD Employee Recognition Banquet to be recognized as her school’s Teacher of the Year, but at the end of the evening she was picking out a brand new car.
The Spring Independent School District named Whitfield as its Elementary Teacher of the Year on May 2 at its annual Employee Recognition Banquet, which celebrates teachers, principals and staff for their service and excellence. Whitfield was awarded the choice of a new Ford Escape or Ford Fusion donated by the event’s sponsor, Planet Ford.
Diane Moretti, an 8th-grade teacher at Dueitt Middle School, was named Spring ISD Secondary Teacher of the Year and she was awarded an all-expenses paid cruise by Planet Ford.

Spring ISD Teacher of the Year Program
Spring ISD’s Teacher of the Year program recognizes outstanding educators for their passion and commitment to excellence in education. Each campus is asked to select a campus winner, who is invited to submit written materials to be considered as a finalist for the district’s teacher of the year. Test scores, classroom and a selection committee help narrow down the pool.
Among the campus winners, 10 will be selected as finalists for the district’s Teacher of the Year.
Those finalists will be unveiled at the district’s annual Employee Recognition Banquet, from which the district’s top teachers – one elementary and one secondary – will be honored. Those two teachers then will go on to represent Spring ISD in the regional competition.
