McNeill Elementary School teacher Daryle Esswein has been selected as a finalist for the 2020 Region 4 Teacher of the Year. Esswein is a fifth grade science teacher.

Esswein said she aims to cultivate a learning environment that is not only engaging, but individualized to each child’s learning style.

“It is up to the teacher to determine how each student learns best. It would be a disservice to my students if I didn’t account for their needs individually when I teach them in my classroom. I will always do whatever it takes to make the content I teach engaging and interesting to my students.”

Regional winners will be announced on Aug. 7 during the annual dinner and awards ceremony for Teachers of the Year. The winners of the Region 4 Teacher of the Year competition will advance to compete this fall at the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) Texas Teacher of the Year program. Texas Teachers of the Year may go on to compete at the national level.
