Lisa Stacey, Mustang Middle School’s Teacher of the Year, was named the Mustang Public Schools District 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year. Stacey told the banquet crowd it was an honor to be selected and acknowledged the other 13 site Teachers of the Year.
“I don’t even know where to start. We do everything as a team,” she said of her math department. “Every decision we make, we make as a team. My administrative team, the support you guys provide is phenomenal. I feel privileged to be part of Mustang, and to be home.”
The 1999 graduate of Mustang High School returned to be a Bronco again in 2015. Her desire to be a teacher started in the halls of Mustang Middle School when she was in Leslie Reynolds’ math class.
“I loved her. I loved her class. I loved the subject,” Stacey said.”Anytime I think of why I became a teacher, I distinctly have an image of her doing her thing. I always loved math in general. I love the cleanness of it. There’s a process and you know if your answer is correct or incorrect. It’s very black and white until you get into upper level math.”
