Veteran teacher, Mr. Eduardo Reyna of McAllen ISD’s Brown Middle School, stands with some of his former students, now adults, at a dinner held May 4. Each year, former students return to provide support for Mr. Reyna. This year, these and other former students provided funds for Mr. Reyna to host a pre-STAAR dinner for his students and parents. Successful former students spoke at the event and provided words of encouragement. A former State Teacher of the Year nominee, Mr. Reyna teaches sixth-grade math at Brown.
