Why We Recognize Bilingual Educators

Habits_that_lead to_learning

A recent tweet from @DavidGeurin about the five habits of effective teachers speaks to why we do what we do at @GeniusPlaza – because we have the privilege of working with teachers that bring these five habits to life each and every day:

That is why we want to celebrate the educators, administrators, and others who live by these habits and epitomize our mission of igniting the genius in every child. Today, we are launching a new series to celebrate the “best of the best” in education, and our inaugural list will celebrate bilingual educators.
Earlier this year, we opened  a call for nominations for our first list, recognizing the best bilingual educators. Today, we want to share our list of finalists, and we want your help in selecting the top five based on this list!  Voting ends at 5:00 pm ET Thursday.!We will announce the top five based on this list – we invite you to vote here:



  1. Sergio Ramos un gran profesional con un método innovadot, dinámico y eficaz. Hace falta gente así en la educación de nuestro mundo.

    1. Maestra Michelle is a truely creative bilingual teacher who builds learning together with her young students and their parents!

  2. Sergio Ramos un gran profesional con un método innovador, dinámico y eficaz. Hace falta gente así en la educación de nuestro mundo, educar disfrutando y haciendo disfrutar a los niños nos brinda un futuro mejor para nuestra sociedad.

  3. I vote for Sergio Ramos from Menchaca Elementary. He not only makes a difference is the lives of his students, but changes
    the lives of his co-workers as well!

  4. Amparo Garza has been more than a great bilingual educator. She has truly left a heart print (an amazing word we have learned from her) not only in our daughter’s heart, but also in ours. Her scope of teaching extends outside the walls of her classroom and is definitely obvious in the hearts of the students she has touched. There isn’t enough words to express how much Amparo Garza has meant to our family and how much our daughter has learned from her. She definitely deserves this award!

  5. Michelle Smith es la mejor inovadora de la enseñanza que he conocido. Incorpora todos los métodos en una manera creativa, energética, y única

  6. Petronila Martinez es una maestra excelente , muy dedicada a sus estudiantes. Ella siempre tiene tiempo para dedicarle no solo a los ninos sino tambien a sus companeras que siempre recurrimos a ella por un consejo, idea o ayuda. Sin lugar a dudas, Ella se merece este reconocimiento.

      1. Ms. Petronila Martinez is a teacher who is totally dedicated to our students and our school community.

  8. Hello are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  9. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few p.c. to power the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.
