Our very own president, Joe Costantino, emceed the 56th Annual New Teachers Lunch. More than 450 new RISD teachers were welcomed by Kay Waggoner, RISD superintendent, while The Honorable Tonya Parker, presiding judge of the 116th Civil District Court in Dallas County, served as the luncheon’s keynote speaker. A plaque recognizing Cisco Systems' continuing support of STEM in Richardson was given to Beth Kolman, Community Relations Manager for Cisco. Judge Parker, the keynote speaker, attended Dobie Elementary, Northwood Hills, and Richardson High School, and said that her teachers made the difference between her difficult beginnings and home life. According to Parker, education isn't always the great equalizer. The equalizer is the teacher "Teachers can help students cancel out the (mental) noise about who they are and what they can do," Parker said. A fabulous event that marks the start of a great journey for our RISD teachers.
