Irving – Irving High School AVID teacher and coordinator, Liliana Middlebrooks, has been nominated for the 2019-2020 national LifeChanger of the Year award.
Middlebrooks was nominated by her colleague, Bridget Winkle, for being an inspirational teacher who goes above and beyond for her students and teachers. She works with other teachers in her school and her district to make sure they are using the best techniques in their classrooms.
As part of her role, Middlebrooks travels around the district teaching professional development. She is available to brainstorm new ideas that will improve student achievement.
Middlebrooks has spent countless hours getting her seniors prepared to attend four-year colleges. She tirelessly researches scholarships for students in need, and she helps them practice for interviews and edits their essays. She gives up a lot of her time to help her students because she wants to see them succeed.
“Liliana’s impact on both students and our campus goes unnoticed sometimes,” Winkle said. “She deserves to know that she is appreciated, respected, and loved by our faculty, staff, and our students.”
Sponsored by the National Life Group Foundation, LifeChanger of the Year recognizes and rewards the very best K-12 educators and school district employees across the United States who are making a difference in the lives of students by exemplifying excellence, positive influence and leadership.
Each school year, LifeChanger of the Year receives hundreds of nominations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Seventeen individual LifeChanger of the Year awards will be given during the 2019-2020 school year.
