Azle High School’s 2016  Top Ten Faculty Picks

Monica Amyett
Dear Mrs. Amyett,
Words cannot express how much of an impact you have had on me these past three years I have been in your class AND part of the robotics team.

You even aided me in receiving the Presidential Scholarship at the University of Texas at Austin with your outstanding recommendation letter, which is a big honor I could not have won without you.… Read the rest
