What do we mean when we say, “Our people make the difference?”
Research shows us that the greatest impact on student learning is the relationship between a student and an educator. It’s not something you can force from the top down. It’s not something you can measure with a test. As a district, we focus on recruiting and hiring people who are passionate and dedicated, people whose greatest joy is seeing your children succeed. Just as we do with our students, we give our educators the resources and tools they need to succeed, then we step back and watch them soar.
At San Angelo, we are proud to say that all 2000 of our educators and staff members are making the difference.

People Who Make the Difference
Meet Devin Dunn
Special Education Teacher at Central High School
"When students leave my class, I want them to be confident in themselves. I want them to be able to advocate for themselves and be as independent as they possibly can be."
Meet Sean Godfrey
Lincoln Middle School Nurse
"Once you work with students and you're in the health care business of taking care of students on campus, it's hard to imagine doing anything else."
Meet Nicholas Sanchez
Special Education Teacher at Reagan Elementary
"I teach because I want my kids to be independent in the community and I want them to live a long and happy life. I hope that the skills that I teach them will go with them no matter where they go."
Meet Macy Smithson
Fifth grade science teacher at Fort Concho Elementary
“I love science. When I’m excited, they’re excited. I don’t really lecture, it’s all about hands-on learning.”
Meet Rosendo Ramos
Mariachi director at Lincoln Middle School
“Mariachi is for everybody. Music is universal, there are no boundaries. It’s all about how you feel it.”
