WestCare Texas and Big Mama’s Safe House Recognize Local Teachers

By Jessica Cerda

WestCare Texas’s team in San Antonio teamed up with one of their, fellow community-based providers, Big Mama’s Safe House to honor the teachers at Booker T. Washington Elementary School in observance of Teacher Appreciation Week on May 3. As part of their “Don’t Stop Teaching/Don’t Stop Learning” campaign, t-shirts were specifically made for both teachers and students. WestCare provided gift bags for all 65 teachers on campus.

Teachers are powerful as they shape and inspire the future of our nation, and they make a daily difference in so many lives. They are the people we never forget and are so deserving of our thanks and appreciation

Senior Vice President of WestCare Texas, Beverly Watts Davis.

Sponsors included City Council (District 2) Member, Jalen McKee-Rodriguez; WestCare Texas; and 1 Church 1 Soul Ministry. Councilmember Mckee-Rodriguez presented the gift bags provided by WestCare, which included a Starbucks gift card, travel-size lotion and hand sanitizer, a set of highlighters, a notebook, sticky notes, candy, and a WestCare pen.

Big Mama’s Safe House has adopted Booker T. Washington Elementary School and they plan to host this event annually to continue providing support and resources to the students and teachers. Their mission focuses on city-wide public awareness campaigns that raise the conversation about child sexual and physical abuse. They advocate for children that are abused and neglected in the community each year.
