  • 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.”

  • 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.”
