February Teacher of the Month: Linda Sooter

Each month, Marshall ISD celebrates the outstanding contributions of our campus faculty to the overall educational experience of our students. These professionals work countless extra hours at home, on weekends, and over holiday breaks with one focus in mind -- to make MISD and their campus Marshall Proud and Maverick Strong for our students.

The Teacher of the Month for February 2018 at David Crockett Elementary School, as selected by Principal, Mrs. Angela Fitzpatrick, is Linda Sooter, P.E. teacher and coach!
