Mr. Alberto Ortiz, a longtime teacher at Bluebonnet Trail Elementary, was recently recognized as our campus “Teacher of the Week” for September 10th – September 14th. He was recognized for 100% of his Bilingual students passing the Reading and Math STAAR test in the 2017-18 school year.
As promised, he allowed his students to paint his face as a reward for their outstanding achievements.
Mr. Ortiz also voluntarily held summer school for his incoming 5th grade students and has consistently taught summer school throughout his career. As of this year, Mr. Ortiz is going into his 15th year in teaching - having taught 2nd Grade Bilingual, 4th Grade Bilingual, and is currently our 5th Grade Bilingual teacher. His goal for the year is to work together with each and every student’s parents to provide them with a rich and wonderful experience. His philosophy is that teaching is not a job, but a great opportunity to enjoy his passion to help his students to learn and grow.
BTE would like to congratulate Mr. Ortiz on his accomplishment!
