Erika Gamez, Paula Walston Are DCISD Teachers of the Year

Paula Walston, pictured with Supt. Ruben Cervantes, is secondary teacher of the year at Dell City ISD.  Erika Gamez, pictured with Supt. Ruben Cervantes, is Dell City ISD elementary teacher of the year.


Dell City ISD's Teachers of the Year were announced last week at the school board's monthly meeting. Erika Gamez, the district's kinder and first-grade teacher, was named the elementary teacher of the year, and math teacher Paula Walston is teacher of the year for secondary.


Teachers of the year are selected by their peers – and these two Dell City educators will join other outstanding educators in Hudspeth and El Paso counties in the running for regional teacher of the year. The school community is grateful to Ms. Gamez and Ms. Walston for everything they do, and for the powerful impact they make in the lives of our students.
