  • Dellview’s dedicated staff shines during campus closure

    Posted by NEISD Communications on 7/14/2020 11:50:00 AM

    “I just simply cannot thank the staff at Dellview Elementary enough. The staff worked so hard to give us as normal an end of year as possible.” 

    The end of the 2019-2020 school year looked very different than what we’re used to seeing. North East ISD parent Amy Nichols helped her children adapt to distance learning with help and support from Dellview Elementary School. While the school year didn’t end the way we all hoped, Nichols says the experience was made all the better because of the commitment from teachers like Melissa Goolsby and Kimberly Gutierrez. 

    “The dedication these people have as educators shined through the challenges they faced,” said Nichols. “Creating lessons that were engaging and not overwhelming for their students was no small task. This was one of the best years yet despite the abrupt and difficult ending.”

    Dellview’s cafeteria staff also provided another layer of normalcy for parents and students like Nichols who were doing their best in unprecedented circumstances. It takes a village, and Nichols says the entire team at Dellview did everything they could to make this experience as enjoyable as possible.

    “Thank you to all of NEISD and Dellview Elementary for creating the impossible in a moment's notice and keeping those happy bright cheerful faces through it all,” said Nichols.

  • Longs Creek teachers make a difference from a distance

    Posted by NEISD Communications on 6/25/2020 9:30:00 AM

    The transition to distance learning was an adjustment for every North East ISD family. NEISD parents Jimmy and Amber O’Halligan were pleasantly surprised to see the teachers and staff at Longs Creek Elementary School go above and beyond their expectations. The O’Halligans were especially moved by their children’s teachers, Keri Bagley and Samantha Yanez. Both teachers took the time to maintain a personal connection with their students while providing engaging lessons from a distance.

    “Each week, my son Gavin has received a handwritten letter in the mail from Mrs. Bagley,” said Jimmy O’Halligan. “Her letter was never about school assignments or instruction, it was about her relationship with my son. As parents, we love that Mrs. Bagley took the time to check in on Gavin and keep that connection. It has been very important to Gavin as well.”

    “More than once, Mrs. Yanez has dropped off care packets on our doorstep,” said Amber O’Halligan. “She arranged online scavenger hunts, talent shows and chats for the students after the schoolwork and instruction was finished. We are blessed to have had these two great teachers in our kids’ lives this past year.”

    Jimmy and Amber O’Halligan are both NEISD employees, but these personal connections remind them why they are so lucky to be NEISD parents as well. We invite you to share your story with us at neisd.net/tellyourstory.

  • NEPD officer assists family during meal pickup

    Posted by Lila Stanley on 6/11/2020 2:30:00 PM

    When Andrea Cabello and her two elementary-aged children walked to Stahl Elementary School to pick up curbside meals, they had no idea they’d be returning home with more than they could carry. North East ISD Police Officer Diana Rodriguez noticed the family had their hands full and offered to personally drive the meals to their home and leave them at their doorstep.

    “This was our first time so when we arrived I didn't expect to have to carry so much home with just us three,” said Cabello. “I had a small backpack but it was not big enough to hold everything, so we each were holding several bags and boxes. [Officer Rodriguez] insisted, and we were so thankful that we were able to comfortably walk back home.”

    North East Police Department officers are on call 24 hours a day and are always available to help NEISD students, families and community members in need. Officer Rodriguez was assisting with traffic during curbside meal pickup when she made a small act of kindness that left a lasting impact on the Cabello family.

    “I wanted to recognize her kindness, thank her and let the District know that we appreciate all NEISD staff and are proud to be a family of NEISD.”
