Canutillo ISD announces top teachers for 2020

The Canutillo Independent School District community has chosen its top educators of the year.

Congressman Silvestre & Carolina Reyes Elementary School Teacher of the Year Nancy Campero was selected as the CISD Elementary Teacher of the Year.

She is a 3rd-grade bilingual teacher who has worked at Reyes Elementary for 3 years.

Canutillo High School Teacher of the Year Anthony Lopez-Waste was selected as the CISD Secondary Teacher of the Year. He teaches World History and AP World History.

He is also a Senior Class representative and coaches Varsity Girls Basketball and JV Softball.

Ms. Campero and Mr. Lopez-Waste will represent CISD in the Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year Contest for Region 19 later this summer. If they’re successful there, they could represent the El Paso region in the Texas Teacher of the Year contest.

“Our teachers in Canutillo never cease to amaze me,” said Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz. “Ms. Campero and Mr. Lopez-Waste are exemplary representatives of who we are and what we do as a premier district.”
