Jessie Cramer , a teacher at Forest Mead-ow Junior High , received the Innovations in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Teaching Award from Texas Instruments. The accolade came with $10,000. Half of that will go directly to Cramer while the other half may be used for STEM-related professional develop-ment or instructional technology at Forest Meadow. Bob Dubey will retire at the end of this school year, after 39 years as teacher, coach and athletic director in the Richardson ISD . “I’m actually going to stick around through next December,” Dubey says. “I’m going to follow through with the bond program – we’ve got four turf fields that we hope will be going in and we have some major scoreboard problems that need upgrades. We have several baseball and softball fields that need upgrades, and so I’ll be very busy between now and December. I’ll hold over so the new AD can transition with-out having to deal with these things.” Top applicants for the open position will undergo scrutiny by reflector groups and hiring committees. 214.536.8517 | | 23 -2 4 A P R I L 20 1 6 MID -C E N T UR Y MODE R N AND NE W MODE R N HOME S B E N E FI TI N G B LU E R I B B O N H E X T ER ELEM ENTA RY S C H O O L The NFL’s Antonio Smith, K104 Radio’s Cat Daddy, the actor who plays Flash Gordon, Sam Jones and many other well-known entertainers will read to elementary school children as part of the Reading With The Pros Literacy Tour , put on by Lake Highlands native Wade Smith , a retired professional football player, and his locally rooted foundation. The pro-gram “promotes and supports childhood literacy and education through in-person celebrity book readings and classroom visits,” according to Smith. On April 22, Wade and company will visit three Richardson ISD schools — Audelia Creek Elementary, Thurgood Marshall and Wal-lace Elementary — where they will read aloud to students in grades K-2. For the older students, Smith and his guests will lead an interactive discussion forum that will focus on literacy and education.
