Mayor Julían Castro spent some time with Northside ISD teachers last week recalling his experiences in the classroom.

The Jefferson High School graduate and education advocate knows the importance of education, and he reiterated his SA2020 initiatives to the group of teachers at Coon Elementary. Mayor Julían Castro praised the teachers for their dedication to teaching and reminded them of the impact they make on a daily basis by sharing their knowledge with hundreds of children each year.

Education initiatives in the SA2020 vision include kindergarten readiness, dropout prevention and college matriculation. Aside from forming partnerships with local businesses and nonprofits, the school districts will also play an important role in reshaping the future of the city’s youth.
