Elementary Teacher of the Year
Angela Snyder, physical education teacher at Townsell Elementary School, has taught for 28 years – 14 of those years with Irving ISD. Snyder has helped implement the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System) program at Thomas Haley and Townsell elementary schools, and her leadership in this area made a significant positive impact on each campus by reducing office referrals. She has also led Townsell students and staff to increase their donation to the American Heart Association from $750 to $5,809 in a few years. In addition, Snyder serves as a mentor to many PE teachers in the district. Snyder was named Teacher of the Year at Thomas Haley Elementary School for the 2008-2009 school year. Thank you, Ms. Snyder, for all that you do!
