    Posted by Public Communications on 8/8/2019

    Paneitz Region4


    Humble ISD's District Teacher of the Year Joe Paneitz has been named Region 4 Teacher of the Year! The honor was announced August 7 at the Region 4 Teacher of the Year Dinner and Award Ceremony at the Westin Galleria.


    Paneitz was selected from 85 secondary teachers of the year who represented 48 area school districts and 37 open-enrollment charter schools.


    “Helping kids find their own practical pathway to success is what I do and is my daily common denominator,” Paneitz said. “I lead with ‘why’ in all our lessons.”

    Paneitz teaches robotics and automation at the CATE Center. He spearheaded a lesson plan called the “Linda’s Laptote” project, named for a fellow teacher with ALS. Students developed a prototype for a lap-based organizational system to make tasks easier for ALS patients. Paneitz also created and manages “All Earth Ecobot Games,” a web-based application which incorporates science, technology, engineering and math into the classroom.


    Paneitz joined Humble ISD in 2016. He was chosen as Humble ISD's Secondary and District Teacher of the Year for 2019-2020. In 2010, he was awarded Channelview's Secondary Teacher of the Year Award.

    The Region 4 Education Service Center (Region 4) covers a seven-county area comprised of 1.2 million students and 97,000 educators.

She is the first one to jump in and help anywhere she is needed in our HR Dept.  In addition, she is the manager for our new Administration Building and has spent many evenings and weekends to make sure all departments have what they need and are kept informed. Lorrie always provides quality service to our employees and community and is a true example of a devoted and loyal Humble ISD employee."
