Ms. Patek certainly deserves the recognition as she devotes a tremendous amount of caring and commitment to not only the students but to the entire staff as well. In fact, it takes little more than a cursory glance at the campus to see the fruits of her labor.
Congratulations, Ms. Patek! You are well-deserving of the award. Along those same lines, the entire family of faculty and dedicated staff at HISD deserves a hearty congratulations as the school -- from top to bottom -- is a model of excellence.
