Each month, Duncanville ISD honors a student, staff member, and teacher who go above and beyond. They are chosen from nominations submitted by coworkers, classmates, or community members. These individuals reflect the excellence and pride of our district, and they are Made with Pride in Duncanville.
Leslie Shimomura is Duncanville ISD's Media Center Coordinator. The media center is the district's "Maker Space". District employees consider Shimomura helpful, especially with last-minute tasks and requests. Colleague Vicki Mercado says posters and signs Shimomura prints aid in the running and functions of Duncanville schools and district events. Items printed are for various purposes, from school and student safety awareness to notifying the D'Ville community of new district policies implemented. Her work is seen across district campuses. Aside from typical defined work duties, Shimomura lends her help with everything from officer appreciation certificates to 'Coffee With The Chief' decor. She does her work excellently and with great prudence, making the most of her time, and this is evident in the detail and proficiency of the products she produces. No matter how many requests are placed and how many are assembled at once, guests are always received with a smile. This is why Leslie Shimomura is Made With Pride.
