Elementary Education Finalists: Connie Bagley, dyslexia specialist, Crockett Elementary, San Marcos CISD

Bagley, a dyslexia specialist in San Marcos ISD who is a 40-year teaching veteran, writes: "I was inspired to teach at an early age. My dad was being transferred and we were moving. It was a traumatic event for a 6-year-old. My class was taking a field trip to the San Antonio zoo soon and I would miss it. I remember how sweet my teacher was and how she promised to take pictures for me. She did that and more. My classmates wrote me stories of their trip and drew me pictures. This teacher's extra effort planted the seed growing in me that I would someday grow into a teacher that made a difference in a child’s life. Even the smallest of gestures can have an impact on a child."
