Eagle Pass, TX - Eagle Pass Independent School District has partnered with local businesses throughout our city to highlight the Teacher of the Month program, which honors educators who have made a difference in our community. The program recognizes outstanding kindergarten, elementary, junior high, and high school teachers in Eagle Pass, Texas.
October's Teacher of the Month is none other than the Eagle Pass High School's, Mr. David Even. Now entering his 5th year of teaching at EPHS, Mr. Even has demonstrated his method of teaching in a profound manner to all of his students. He is currently teaching World Geography, Boys Basketball, and in the spring he will tackling AP Macroeconomics. In the spectrum of World Geography, he is able to bring the outside world to the eyes of freshmen level students. He introduces these young students to different lands, cultures, and ways of thinking to students who may never have the opportunity to travel beyond our hometown of Eagle Pass. In the realm of AP Macroeconomics, he exposes students to the world of finances, investments, and most importantly credit. This is vital since most of the AP students will be graduating and venturing into the real world shortly. As a coach for Boys Basketball, he has the privilege of introducing his athletes to the skills they will need to succeed in the sport and in life. He makes sure his lessons can transcend on and off the court,
Mr. David Even is an asset to EPHS, EPISD, and Eagle Pass, Texas. He is the type of person that will never back down from any challenge and will take it on head first with a smile on his face and a heart full of love for his students. For all these reasons and more, Mr. David Even is Teacher of the Month.
A segment will appear on iVision throughout the month of October detailing many more accomplishments of Mr. Even. This month he will also appear on community media, news publications and the EPISD website throughout October 2021. A teacher will be selected each month through May 2021 for a total of eight (8) honorees.
