Big Hearts: Eula ISD Aide Teaches From the Heart

EULA, Texas (KTAB) - Even before entering the school campus or classroom, a teacher spends a significant amount of time preparing their curriculum.

There are some lessons that come from a book but then there are some that come from the heart.

“I try to not just have relationships with these kids while they’re in school but outside of school. I’m here for them and they know that,” says Janice Conway, a teacher’s aide at the Eula Independent School District.

Janice Conway is a special education teachers aid at Eula High School, “To see them learn and grow, it’s just a blessing.”

“She just has this demeanor about her. She takes care of everyone,” says Kortni Collins, the Eula ISD school counselor.

Jayton Thompson, the Eula ISD special education teacher says, “She is just a blessing not only to the kids that she works with every day but to me. She reminds me to be patient with them."

Conway has taught at Eula ISD for 14 years.  During the last four years, she’s focused her efforts on helping students who need a little more attention.

“To know their individual challenges and learn each of them individually,” says Conway.

Thompson adds, “You don’t really see how well my classroom doesn’t work until she’s not there. She just kind of makes us go.”

Conway says her responsibilities come with great rewards, “Joy. Joy. You know they’re so easygoing and so accepting. To see them learn and grow, it’s just a great blessing.”

Conway gives every day with her students 100% and she would never accept anything less.

When the school year arrives, Conway goes on a mission trip with her family to Zambia, Africa. She credits her faith for guiding her along the way.
