PARENTS: If you are enrolling your children in PIISD and have a child/children at Port Isabel High School, I highly recommend the following Teachers:

Mrs. Rosario Taylor:  English, NHS, Dance Team 


I received a “word of encouragement” for Rosario Taylor while our daughter was enrolled at Port Isabel High School.

*  has a firm grasp on current events and teaches history in context

* Does not view young Learners as products, commodities, or human capital.

*TAKES KIDS OUTSIDE to feel the grass under their feet, the sun on their faces, the rain on their shoulders, and the wind blowing across the bay









ALL of these teachers above teach entire families, not just classrooms of young Learners.

They have impacted our family for the better and forever.



These Teachers are “top-notch” Teachers on the high school campus in Port Isabel, Texas. I’m sure there are other amazing teachers but these teachers share the following strengths:  

1. POSITIVE ENGAGEMENT WITH PARENTS: They know how to engage with parents and actually listen to Dads and Moms concerning their children. They have a seasoned understanding of the many levels on the field of education.

2. GOOD ROLE MODELS: They are good role models for young Learners. Gary and I would welcome our children to emulate the characteristics of these Teachers.

3. EXPERTS IN THEIR FIELD: They are intelligent “experts” in their field of study and of teaching.

4. PASSION: They have a passion for the content they teach.

5. GREAT MANAGEMENT SKILLS: They manage the classrooms entrusted to their care well.

6. POSITIVE AUTHORITY AND HEALTHY BOUNDARIES: They have a solid authority and clear boundaries with their students. They are safe, sure, and secure in their roles as advocates for true and vibrant learning and see to it that this takes place.

7. INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION: They inspire and motivate people towards “win-win”, good, successful outcomes.

We need more Teachers like these Teachers on the field of Education.

Our family stands by these Teachers. We would welcome any of these teachers to teach our children, and yours, as well.
