Adriana Farias Renovato was nominated by a member in the community, Mary Snyder.
"Ms. Renovato inspires her colleagues and students with enthusiasm, patience, and humor. As a community volunteer in her Kindergarten bilingual classroom for three years, I have witnessed her expert teaching and genuine care for each student. In addition to her duties in the classroom, Ms. Renovato serves as the director of the school's Ballet Folklorico Team. Ms. Renovato leads this group in learning traditional Hispanic music and dance, and they perform all over the Denton County area. The dance troupe reflects her love of her heritage and her unique ability to make learning a lasting gift to her students and their parents. As Ms. Renovato completes her 20th year of teaching, this award would recognize her dedication to learning and making her community a better place for everyone," said Snyder.
