Celebrating educators, who go far above and beyond the call of duty, Teachers are Heroes shines a spotlight on one of the most important professions…teaching!  On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, Azusa Pacific University (APU) and KATY 101.3 The Mix (KATY) recognized Rancho Viejo Middle School (RVMS) teacher Israel Marshall as November/December Teachers are Heroes winner for his efforts in making a difference in the lives of so many people.

Marshall teaches 7th grade ELA (English Language Arts) and is also the football coach at RVMS in Hemet.  Chelsey Hallberg, RVMS counselor, nominated Marshall and said, “Mr. Marshall is hands down one of the most encouraging and inspiring teachers to students and adults. He mentors and provides support to at-risk students to help them.”

His unwavering belief that ALL students can succeed at a high level are evident in all that he does as a coach, teacher, mentor and father figure to so many. He is a superstar Maverick!”
