I am honored to announce Amber Price has won Diboll ISD District Teacher of the Year!
We are blessed to have her on our Temple Elementary campus, but more importantly to have her as part of our district!
She has taught all 11 years of her career here in Diboll and currently teaches our first-grade Accelerated class.
She’s taught Kindergarten and first grade as well as Dual Language classes.
When asked what her philosophy of education is Mrs. Price responded:
“I truly believe what Theodore Roosevelt said, ‘People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.’ This is true for students. If they have their needs met, they are more ready to participate in learning. I start out each year building respect, caring, and trust between myself and my students. We are a team. I tell them that my job is to teach them and their job is to learn. No one can learn for them, and they are responsible for their own learning. It takes time, but the payoff is worth it. Once the kids know that I will do whatever is necessary for them to be safe and learn, I rarely have students off task or disruptive. Kids WANT to learn. They are like sponges; you just have to make sure that what they soak up is worthwhile and positive because it lasts.”
She is truly a master teacher with a servant attitude!
Thank you teachers!

Dear Diboll ISD Teacher,
Thank you so much for being a highly motivated and passionate person. Thank you for making sure that all children, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, and capabilities have the opportunity to learn from a professional, well-informed staff member who is knowledgeable, both in their area of expertise and in life.
Thank you for believing that everyone of our students has potential. Because you believe in our student’s potential from PK thru 12th grade you help them develop and mature with the “end in mind.” The “end in mind” can be a good job, a technical certificate, the military, or a college degree and beyond. Each of these endeavors is a success story that you helped write! Thank you for inspiring our students to be more than they could ever dream! A great teacher never ever gives up! A great teacher is a gift! We Cherish them!
Have a GREAT WEEK!
