White Oak, TX (Longview News-Journal) — Three White Oak ISD educators were honored Tuesday during a meeting in Austin for their work with technology in the district.
Mitzi Neely was named District Administrator of the Year by the Texas Computer Education Association.
Neely is the director of curriculum and instruction and has been with WOISD for two years. She has 32 years experience in education.
“The TCEA is about recognizing the importance of technology in the teaching and learning process,” Neely said. “We have a lot of neat things going on and a lot of technology, and we have a vision to integrate technology at all campuses and to fuse that piece with the instructional process.”
The association named Pam Cranford the Instructional Technology Specialist of the Year for her work to bring WOISD to the front of the line in technology and its applications in learning.
“This means we are on the right track for our students’ future,” Cranford said. “It’s not a curriculum, it’s a tool. Ten thousand people came to this conference, and if you say White Oak, they know what school you’re talking about.”
Cranford has been with the White Oak school district for 29 years.
