“Mrs. Stapper is one of the most humble educators I know.

Her dedication and commitment to students is unparalleled'' said Deputy Superintendent Dr. Farrah Gomez. “The sparkle in her eyes as she watches students blossom in the environments she has created exemplifies the greatness of the best of the best public educators. They remove all barriers and bring new possibilities forward where all students can shine.”

As Region 15 Elementary Teacher of the Year, Stapper is one of 40 teachers vying for the State Elementary Teacher of the Year title. This fall, three elementary finalists will be selected and interviewed by the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) prior to naming the state recipient.
