ECISD to celebrate outstanding teachers

Ector County ISD leaders will honor their 2020-21 Outstanding Teachers Monday with dinner and a movie at the Big Sky Drive-in Theatre, 6200 W. Highway 80 in Midland.

The movie features a scene with each of the 43 campus award winners. This year’s event will include a meal for award winners and a guest, music, a photo booth and the feature presentation — a recognition of the teachers.

The evening starts at 7:30 p.m. with the reel rolling at approximately 9:10 p.m.

Each spring, ECISD schools nominate teachers on their own campus. Those nominees are narrowed down then sent to a district committee of teachers that ultimately chooses the honoree for each campus.
