If you could harness the energy being expended in a Perry Creek Elementary conference room lately, you could probably light up the whole school. Heck, you probably could light all the schools in the Sioux City Community School District. This team is energized with a capital “E.”

“I think special education used to be viewed as glorified tutors,” said Mary Duax, a special education teacher since 1990. “Students came to the resource room to get help with what they were doing in the regular classroom. Today it is meant to supplement what they are doing in the core. We are teaming with the general education teachers.

Thank you to our teachers that go above and beyond every day. This year, the #SCCSD recognized a “Teacher of the Year” for each school building in the District. These teachers will be recognized at this year’s “Are You Smarter Than Our Fourth Grader?” event put on by the Sioux City Public Schools Foundation. At the event, Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman will also announce this year’s Teacher of the Year for the Sioux City Community School District.
Help us recognize these outstanding educators!
