Sparks Elementary School

Sparks Teacher Honored by Frisco RoughRiders

Jul 20, 2015

A fifth grade teacher from Sparks Elementary was honored by the Frisco RoughRiders Foundation as its July 2015 FISD Teacher of the Month.

Michele Weeks was recognized during the RoughRiders' home game on July 18, where she received "VIP treatment," including four tickets with Founders Club access (including free parking, food and beverages) as well as a private tour of the ballpark before the game.

Weeks was nominated by fellow teacher and colleague Laura Barr, who described Weeks' passion for teaching and bubbly personality that reaches far beyond the classroom. She also cited Weeks' outstanding ability to help students succeed in all circumstances, as well as continuously being a strong leader for staff.

The RoughRiders Foundation established the FISD Teacher Recognition program in 2008 to recognize outstanding Frisco school teachers for their dedication and work on behalf of Frisco’s students and general community. One teacher is recognized each month during the RoughRiders season.

Weeks was presented with a check for $500 in her name that will be split between Sparks Elementary and the Frisco Education Foundation.
