High Five Club with hands

Click HERE to submit your High Five Club recognition.

The High Five Club is a way to recognize Tyler ISD employees who go above and beyond what is expected to help our students, and each other, succeed!

Anyone can send a High Five to a Tyler ISD employee! Are you a parent who is impressed with how your child’s teacher helped them understand a difficult concept? Or a staff member who thinks a coworker doesn’t hear often enough about the great job they do every day? YOU can send a High Five!

  • Supervisors will see your High Five Club recognition;

  • The employee will get a special certificate acknowledging their recognition;

  • Campuses may provide added recognition for High Five Club recipients;

  • Recipients are listed on this page to let you know the names of the District's customer service superstars!

Examples of High Five Club Recognition:

He has stepped in to help in every way possible. He has covered classes, lunches, stopped to just talk with students. He has been an overall great help and I appreciate all that he does to support the students and staff here on campus.”

“She is an excellent teacher who dotes on her kids throughout the day and then takes time to send parents texts, emails, pictures in the evening. (This has been a special blessing this year!)   She has also taken time out of her weekends to watch her students play sports. Nothing can compare to a teacher who is willing to go that extra mile and make her students feel so special!”

She has gone above and beyond making my daughter feel confident in math, when in years past she has felt like a failure. She sent me a detailed email on all the strong qualities she saw in my daughter.  It made me feel so good knowing she had such a caring teacher that makes her feel like a success in a subject that has not come easy to her.”
