Quick Tip Information

Quick Tip is a support system that allows students to communicate with school administrators. While the district already has many programs to help students deal with challenges such as bullying behaviors, stress, peer pressure, and family problems, Quick Tip helps break the code of silence often experienced by students because it allows them to report concerns to administrators anonymously.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is not a crisis line. In cases of emergency, the site will direct students to call 911!

For the fifth time, Paris ISD has won both of the Region 8 Service Center Teacher of the Year competitions.

Amy Hooten and Michael Rhodes have been named the Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year. They will represent Region 8 as its nominees for the 2018 Texas Education Agency (TEA) Teacher of the Year.

Hooten teaches reading at Justiss Elementary School and Rhodes teaches automotive technology at Paris High School.

Hooten and Rhodes will compete against 38 other regional teachers of the year. Six finalists will be invited to Austin for personal interviews as part of the Elementary Teacher of the Year and the Secondary Teacher of the Year competition. The winners will serve as traveling ambassadors for public education.

Hooten and Rhodes join an extensive list who have achieved this honor in the past 28 years.  Since 1989, Paris ISD has had 24 regional teachers of the year.  The district has also had five state finalists and one Texas Teacher of the Year.
