  • NEISD teachers go the extra mile for distance learners

    Posted by Lila Stanley on 4/20/2020 10:55:00 AM

    Starting a new school is hard enough, but it’s even more difficult when your new home campus is closed. Juliana registered to join Hidden Forest Elementary School in March but was unable to join her class in person because of COVID-19. In recent weeks, she has jumped right into distance learning with the help of her teacher Megan White.

    “She is very happy and excited to actually attend her new school,” said Jennifer Mata, Juliana’s mother. “I spoke with Mrs. White and told her how thankful I am for the Zoom calls and lessons. Juliana gets excited for those calls, and it lets her know we’re all in this together.”

    North East ISD teachers are used to stepping up to go the extra mile for their students. But now, more than ever, it’s crucial for every student and family to know that #NEISDcares.

    “Who would ever think that this would be how our students and staff would end the school year,” said Jennifer Mata. “Thank you for all your hard work.”

  • Proud to be a part of the NEISD team

    What do you get when you cross an NEISD teacher, an NEISD student, and the coronavirus? A whole new normal and a chance to really count your blessings.

    Ashlee Lara is a teacher at Hardy Oak Elementary School. Her daughter, Harper, is also a student at the school. Now, Ashlee is figuring out not only how to teach her classroom students from home, but she is also homeschooling her daughter through distance learning. Throughout it all, she is not alone.

    “It's times like this that make me EVEN MORE proud to be an educator in NEISD! We've received video messages, emails, voice recordings, and more from the administrators and teaching staff! The kindergarten team at Hardy Oak, and her teacher, Mrs. Brennen, have done amazing things to make Harper feel like they love her and are thinking of her! The Zoom meetings put THE BIGGEST smile on her face, and all of her teachers (including her Specials, Art, Library, and Makerspace teachers) have made it a point to leave positive comments and voice recordings on her Seesaw assignments! WE LOVE NEISD!”

  • Online learning made easy with NEISD

    Posted by Lila Stanley on 3/25/2020

    Like so many North East ISD families, the coronavirus pandemic has turned life upside down for Amber Rockwell. The switch to online learning has been even more complicated for her children after a house fire displaced the family over spring break.

    Rockwell says a difficult time for her family has been made a little easier thanks to the kindness of teachers at Hardy Oak Elementary School, Lopez Middle School and Reagan High School.

    “A family of seven stuck in a hotel room with only two Chromebooks was NOT the ideal situation for starting our online learning experience - especially with mom and dad needing to work remotely. However, our fabulous NEISD teachers kept us well-informed, organized, and confident that anything is possible. Our children especially love to meet with their teachers and classmates via video chat. It has been a blessing at a difficult time. Thank you!
