Texas Tribune features WSD educator Jody Addy

 Combining history, math, computer skills and vocational plans, Jody Addy keeps the attention of students in her Windham literacy class.

Have you read about the WSD teacher who almost missed her calling?

The Texas Tribune featured WSD’s Lane Murray Excellence in Teaching winner Jody Addy earlier this month in its online newspaper.  Writer Johnathan Silver and photographer Neil Cooper made the trip to Abilene to spend the day with Addy, who teaches literacy classes in the CAI Lab at the Robertson Unit. They interviewed Addy, her students and her coworkers to portray an amazing teacher in her element.  If you haven’t seen the story, please check it out at:
