Bandera High School’s Kirsten Wedgworth finished in the top five in one of the events at the Texas Association of Future Educators, or TAFE, Convention in McAllen earlier this month, which qualified her to compete at the national TAFE convention.
Wedgworth competed in the “Shadowing a Non-Core Teacher” event after qualifying for the state convention at a regional association convention in San Antonio in December.
Thirty-three schools took part in the state convention on Feb. 20-22 called Teach Tomorrow for students preparing to be educators. Bandera Independent School District officials congratulated Wedgworth for her accomplishment.
“I am so proud of the hard work and dedication this girl puts into TAFE and the education program at Bandera High School,” said Mrs. Morgan Groff, Bandera High’s TAFE sponsor. “There is nothing more rewarding then seeing my kids succeed!”
Groff also sent a “big thank you” to Stacey Clark for allowing Wedgworth to shadow her in the classroom.
