MFISD Congratulates 2018-19 District Teachers of the Year

Marble Falls Independent School District is honored and thrilled to announce Ms. Lezlie Lust as the MFISD Elementary Teacher of the Year and Mr. Patrick Minor as the MFISD Secondary Teacher of the Year.


Honorees are nominated and voted through by their peers as professionals who best exemplify the work, dedication, focus, and passion for loving and inspiring students at each campus. Following that determination, a District Committee is tasked with narrowing the list further to select one elementary teacher of the year from all four elementary campus nominations and one secondary from all three campuses.


“Ms. Lust is an awesome example of teachers transforming lives every day. She sees potential in every child and works hard to find art opportunities for them both in and beyond the classroom, said Leslie Baty, MFISD Director of Elementary Education. “She has made a positive difference at HLES and we are fortunate to have a teacher of her caliber representing MFISD as the elementary teacher of year.”


“Mr. Minor is highly deserving of being selected as our MFISD secondary teacher of the year. In addition to being an excellent science teacher, he is a strong mentor for our students as they navigate life as a teenager. He is a great example of our district vision, as he ‘loves & inspires’ our students every day to do their best.” said Heather Metzgar, MFISD Director of Secondary Education.

Our MFISD District Teachers of the Year are recognized during faculty meetings and celebrations of success at each campus. They will also be recognized during our state-of-the-year District Convocation in the fall. Teachers are also featured on district/campus websites, school marquees, and through your personal acknowledgements for a job well done.


District Teachers of the Year will now move on to compete for the Central Texas Regional distinctions in the annual Region XIII Teacher of the Year Awards.
