Teacher Recognition 2015

Message from the Superintendent:

Teacher Recognition 2015

Correctional education in Texas is in the best hands, thanks to Windham School District teachers on 91 prison sites. Our professional, certified educators are being recognized during National Teacher Appreciation Month, marking more than 45 years of educational success through WSD programs. WSD teachers are changing lives daily within the confines of Texas prisons, using education and job training to help transform offenders into productive members of society. The accomplishments of our teachers are life-altering and long-lasting. They make a difference.

To quote WSD educator Sumer Alexander, “Teaching for WSD is the purest form of education still out there. … There is an autonomy and enormous freedom to break down what each individual student needs on each day and meet them where they are – in a prison environment.”

WSD teachers train tomorrow’s work force, model a positive lifestyle, interrupt criminal thinking and push students toward success. WSD teachers give their students a second chance at life. We are proud of these extraordinary educators! Please thank them for all they do.

We are Windham!  

Windham School District teachers make a positive difference each day while educating offenders in Texas, improving professional skills through training, and being recognized by others for a job well done!  They are found in schools, classrooms and vocational shops on 91 prison sites from El Paso to Beaumont, and Edinburg to Dalhart. 

Meet some of the men and women who proudly teach for WSD!
