The Bryan school board recognized two employees Monday night as part of its teacher of the month series.
Trina Knapek, kindergarten teacher at Sam Houston Elementary, was selected for the amount of pride she takes in her work and ensuring every child is successful.
Superintendent Thomas Wallis read a note that was sent to the school's principal by a parent.
Also recognized Monday was Keith Jackson, eighth-grade math teacher and boys athletics coordinator at Jane Long Middle School.
His principal wrote in the nomination letter that Jackson has a knack for building rapport with students and is a leader to fellow colleagues.
The awards will be given each month. Citibank is underwriting the award and giving gift certificates to the winners.
