Belinda Medellin, a technology teacher at CAST Tech High School, received a surprise announcement in front of her students on Aug. 14. Representatives from Education Service Center, Region 20 entered her classroom with balloons, announcing her as the 2020 Secondary Teacher of the Year for Region 20.
“We would like to thank Ms. Medellin for making learning in her classroom both memorable and impactful,” said Dr. Jeff Goldhorn, executive director of ESC-20. “She serves as a role model for teachers across our region and I commend her in her belief that education should always be looked at through the lens of opportunity with a forward-thinking mindset.”
Earlier this year, Medellin was named one of SAISD’s three 2019 Distinguished Teachers of the Year. In her application, Medellin wrote about her desire to keep her students moving forward.
“The most significant contributions and accomplishments that I have made in education involve helping my many students discover what they would like to do after high school graduation,” Medellin said.
