Teachers. We don’t deserve them but man oh man do we NEED THEM!! They are unsung heroes, rockstars and the reason why many of us go into the careers we go into when we’re adults.

Honestly, it was a teacher who pushed me to pursue broadcasting because they saw something in me and made sure to let me know!

We owe a lot to teachers and Casa Nissan of El Paso knows that, too! One deserving El Paso Independent School District teacher will get a special surprise for all her hard work and dedication to their students in the form of a BRAND NEW CAR!

Casa Nissan of El Paso has partnered with EPISD to give a deserving teacher a brand-new Nissan Kicks and it’s the people of El Paso that get to vote on which deserving teacher will win that new car.

One teacher from every EPISD campus was nominated by their peers for this competition. Five finalists were narrowed from a pool of more than 80 teacher nominees.

Earlier this month, those five finalists were surprised on campus and told that they were in the running for the brand new car courtesy of Casa Nissan.

The five finalists include Amaris Vega from Cielo Vista Elementary, Laura Chavez from Clardy Elementary, Helen Rivera from Magoffin Middle, Gabriela Almeida from Sunrise Mountain Elementary, and Veronica Rodriguez from Zavala Elementary.


The community is encouraged to vote for the teacher they think deserves this brand new car. Voting is open from now until Wednesday, May 18th. The winner of the Nissan Kicks will be announced by none other than El Paso’s favorite Green Bay Packer, Aaron Jones, during a live ceremony on May 20th at 10 a.m. at Casa Nissan of El Paso.

Each of these deserving teachers has an inspiring story to share. You can read more about each of their compelling stories and also place your vote by clicking here: https://www.episd.org/kickit

Good luck to these deserving teachers!
