This year, Estimbo received District Teacher of the Year for Elementary campuses with Mission CISD. He is originally from Edinburg but has found his educational family at Castro Elementary.
“After I got the award, my students were waiting and they had made cards for me,” Estimbo said. “One girl said, ‘I guess dreams do come true.’ I told her yes.”
The reading and writing teacher started his career in 1977 with MCISD after he heard of an innovative program that was Mission was going to implement. It was a program that utilized computers for curriculum.
