2020 Campus Teacher of the Year

Lyssa Smith

English Teacher | Total Years Teaching: 5 | Years at ROISD: 5

"I want my kids to see learning as a challenge that will help them later in life, not just a high school course to finish. I frequently encourage and plan healthy debates and discussions where students feel safe expressing their ideas and heading ideas that may be new to them. In the end, my goal is for my kids to learn to honor all people because we're all an integral part of our society."
