MISD Teachers and Staff Kick Off the New School Year in Style


More than 4,000 Mansfield ISD teachers and staff came together for a time of fun, laughs, and encouragement in preparation for the upcoming school year.

MISD Convocation 2015 was held on Wednesday, August 19 at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts. From the high-energy dancing to the motivational messages, the goal was to get everyone excited for another year of great achievements.

Superintendent Dr. Jim Vaszauskas and School Board President Dr. Michael Evans empowered the audience by explaining why every single job title held within the school district is important to a student's education. The key speaker, Dr. John Draper, helped educators realize that everything they do can influence a child's life.
