SAN ANTONIO – A North East ISD educator is getting some love on social media regarding photos of him helping a student with his tie.
Longs Creek Elementary Assistant Principal Bryan Silvia was caught on camera Wednesday morning helping fifth-grade student Miguel Rivera tie his tie before a field trip to the Genius Wax Museum.
“This isn’t just a job for me. It’s a calling. I want to do more than help kids with school… it’s also about being there for them, teaching them life skills they may not learn anywhere else," Silvia said.
While formal attire wasn’t required for the field trip, Miguel reportedly wanted to sport a tie “being the gentleman that he is,” a spokesperson for NEISD said as part of a Facebook post.
Silvia has been with NEISD for 11 years and this is his first year at Longs Creek Elementary.
