Advocate Top Teacher: Teresa Innes

Name: Teresa Innes

District: VISD

School: Cade Middle School

Teaches: Eighth-grade math

Teresa Innes was my seventh-grade math teacher at Crain Elementary School. I am now 26 and often think about her impact on my learning. She truly, deeply believed in me and my abilities. She set high standards for her students and I strived to reach those because her belief in me was greater than my own. She is the kind of teacher that you pray your children will have and that you aspire to one day be like.
