Andy Brady - I have had the joy in my tenure as an educator to work with some talented teachers. I have always desired to clone the many qualities of these educators into one. When I came to Irma Marsh Middle School, I was able to see the reality of this type of clone. Mr. Brady is a teacher who has strong content knowledge and a genuine passion for kids. He is on the Superintendent Teacher Advisory Committee. Mr. Brady has been proactive in providing solutions to barriers impeding student achievement. He has opened his classroom to colleagues to learn from him and have valued the opportunities to learn from them. He sets the bar high for his students. Board of Education and Guest, Mr. Andy Brady. I would like to ask Mr. Brady’s family to please stand and be recognized.
Connie Aregullin - (A ray-Gulin)-Ms. Connie is a hard person to describe. Let me see if I can do her any justice; she wears the hat of a nurse, teacher, administrator, cook, mother, counselor, ELL specialist, but carries the title of a para educator. Mrs. Aregullin is an all-around employer who is willing to be wherever she is needed to make a difference in the life of a scholar. She is completing 12 years in CISD all served at IMMS. Her passion and commitment to serving our second language learners has helped many of our ESL scholars transition smoothly at IMMS. Board of Education and Guest, Mrs. Connie Aregullin. I would like to ask Leslie’s family to please stand and be recognized.
Erika Starnes - They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. You met her daughter Kaitlin Starnes earlier. Kaitlin’s success is modeled through her parents’ strong work ethics and expectations of her. Mrs. Starnes has modeled for Kaitlin what that looks like. She is a volunteer at IMMS. She always makes herself accessible to the needs of the campus. In addition to serving the scholars at IMMS, Mrs. Starnes volunteers for the Texas Girl’s Choir and Cub Scouts for Joshua. Mrs. Starnes earned her Bachelor of Business and Accounting from Texas Wesleyan University. She is a member of the Site Base Decision Making Committee and a strong IMMS supporter.

|Irma Marsh administration, faculty, staff, and scholars would like to extend a special thanks to Pastor Andy and Rachel Salazar and members of their congregation at One Faith Church for their contribution to the IMMS Attendance Celebration. The IMMS Attendance Challenge is aimed at getting students in grades 6th through 8th to attend school everyday and on time.
Pastor Salazar and his wife contributed over 100 pizzas and drinks to our 7th grade IMMS scholars for the grade level who had the highest attendance rate of 95% for the end of the 3rd six weeks on Friday, January 27. Scholars also enjoyed 30 minutes of music by D. J. Javier, soccer, football, and basketball. Students participated in loads of physical activities with their teachers. We would once again like to thank our partners at One Faith Church.
