March Teacher Of The Month: Lori Bramlett

Each month, Marshall ISD celebrates the outstanding contributions of our faculty at our campuses to the overall educational experience of our students. These professionals work countless extra hours at home, on weekends, and over holiday breaks with one focus in mind -- to make MISD and their campus Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong for our students.

The Teacher of the Month for March 2018 at Sam Houston Elementary School, as selected by Principal, Mr. Jerry Hancock, is Lori Bramlett, second-grade teacher.

"Mrs. Bramlett is a master teacher," said Mr. Hancock. "She is able to operate effortlessly in her classroom through the relationships she has built with her students which puts all of her students in position for high levels of success. She does whatever she has to do to help every child and is always willing to help out the campus and anyone on it when needed. I consider it an honor to work with Mrs. Bramlett and depend on her commitment to our kids to care for them and push them toward academic and personal success."
