CHISD Names 2nd Annual STEM Teacher of the Year

The Cedar Hill Independent School District announced its District and STEM Teachers of the Year during its Annual Leadership & Service Celebration, with the movie star theme of “Bright Lights and Brilliant Minds.”

“We are honored to recognize these exceptional educators who earned these prestigious honors,” Cedar Hill ISD Superintendent Dr. Gerald Hudson said. “They faced serious competition to win these awards, and they are very well deserved.”

Collegiate Prep Elementary Second Grade Math/Science Teacher Davie Moore was named the Cedar Hill ISD STEM Teacher of the Year, which awards a $10,000 prize thanks to a partnership with Texas Instruments and the CHISD Education Foundation.

Half of the prize money must be spent on the campus, and half is given to the winning teacher to be spent personally.

Moore, who coordinates all STEM activities at Collegiate Prep, said she’ll spend the campus money to continue to upgrade STEM at Prep, and she’ll use the personal funds toward her Master’s Degree at Grand Canyon University.
