Area teachers recognized by Junior Cotillion

March 19, 2012 by Katie Martinez

Teachers from across Parker County are honored by the Junior Cotillion for leading by example.Ten Parker County educators were honored last week for inspiring students with their exceptionally good manners.

“These special educators are among the very best, who treat the students of Parker County with respect and instill a love of learning,” Aledo’s Junior Cotillion director Sharon Pate said.

The teachers were given certificates and roses in an awards ceremony at the Junior Cotillion Grand Ball February 25 at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center.

“Teachers don’t get enough thank yous,” Pate told students and parents gathered at the event. “We would like to honor them.

These special teachers have been chosen by Junior Cotillion students to receive the ‘Best Mannered Teacher’ award.”

Students wrote essays about a teacher who they found to have the best manners and who always treated others with honor, dignity, and respect.

“We thank our students for taking the time to honor these special teachers who are good role models and show courtesy and respect to all students,” Pate said.

Junior Cotillion students, in sixth grade through eighth grade, meet monthly during the school year to learn etiquette and ballroom dancing.

The program is designed to build self-confidence, character and ethical behavior and is dedicated to making a positive impact on young people and helping them become tomorrow’s leaders.

Pamela Burchill of McAnally Intermediate
Deborah Pearle of Trinity Christian
