Now, as the Sharyland District Teacher of the Year for secondary education, he believes the seed was planted early that sprouted his love for education.

“Mrs. Hyslop is the teacher that I owe my spark and passion for working with special needs students to,” Slawson said. “Thank you Mrs. Hyslop, you had no idea how much you influenced my education, careerchoices and my life in general. Thank you for everything that you did and I wish I couldhave told you how much you meant to me.”
