Since 1969, the Texas Teacher of the Year Program (TOY) has honored excellence in classroom education and provided a forum to showcase many outstanding educators whose efforts and example have inspired their students, their colleagues, and the communities they serve.  Texas Teacher of the Year is the highest honor that the State of Texas can bestow upon a teacher.  Facilitated by the Texas Association of School Administrators, the Texas Teacher of the Year Program annually recognizes and rewards teachers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in teaching. Every fall, 40 Regional Teachers of the Year are selected -- one elementary and one secondary teacher from each of the 20 Education Service Center regions in Texas.  Six finalists are then chosen from among the 40 semi-finalists. Following an interview process, the Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year and Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year are chosen from among the six finalists.  One is selected to represent the state in the National Teacher of the Year program. Borger ISD would like to congratulate their two District Nominees, Kacie Kaake, Elementary Teacher of the Year 2019 Nominee and Nick Mears,  Secondary Teacher of the Year 2019 Nominee.  Kaake teaches 5th and 6th-grade special education math and Mears teaches band at BMS and is Assistant Band Director at Borger High School. An Administrative Committee selected Kaake and Mears.   “Borger ISD is proud to honor our 2019 Teachers of the Year:  Mrs. Kacie Kaake and Mr. Nick Mears.  Mrs. Kaake, our Elementary Teacher of the Year is an exemplary teacher who changes the lives of students by encouraging and nurturing hard work and perseverance. She creates a culture of strong effort in her classroom and students rise to the expectations she sets.   Mr. Mears, our Secondary Teacher of the Year, is an expert in his field and is completely committed to his craft and his program.  He provides excellence in the band hall and beyond by helping to build Borger ISD’s band program from the middle school.  Our district is fortunate to have such dedicated, outstanding educators to work with and learn from!”  stated Amy Blansett, Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction.                                               Kacie Kaake                                                             Nick Mears

Borger High School Graphic Design and Fine Art departments recently competed in the State Vase (visual art scholastic event) art contest in San Marcos on April 27th. To even qualify for State students had to compete at the Regional Area competition at Amarillo High and receive top honors there (a “4” on their artwork) Then, judges chose a certain percentage to represent our Region at the state level from the 4’s, which is a very low amount of artwork chosen to move on.  At State level judges once again choose a certain percentage of artwork to receive 4’s, State Medals. All Borger High School students competing brought home State medals! Sophomore, Kayli Spickes was also awarded a $600.00 scholarship in a 3D Div. II workshop she participated in with her unique, creative imagery created with clay. Congratulations to all the students with their exemplary artwork honors! Teachers, Mrs. Kerr, Mrs. Renick, and Ms. Washer are extremely proud of these students.  Hard work, creative edge, technical skills, and mega talent put these students at the top along with the other high school artists across the state. Pictured are:  Junior, Yuvia Mojica, Freshman, Nicole Holguin, Junior, Mason Condren, Junior, Auna Heard, and Sophomore, Kayli Spickes
