As the third-largest school district in Texas and the largest employer in Northwest Harris County, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District impacts the lives of far more than the 115,000 students and thousands of teachers, employees and administrators across 88 elementary, middle and high school campuses and special program facilities that study and work within our walls. In fact, we’re proud that as a top-rated school district, the work we do within our school system extends beyond the schools and permeates within our neighborhoods and businesses, making the greater Cypress-Fairbanks community a better place to work, live, study and play. The Cypress-Fairbanks community excels because of our CFISD cheerleaders; the individuals and businesses that invest in and support our students and community at large.
Today, we highlight Tim Goode, a licensed irrigator in Texas who has worked in maintenance for CFISD’s grounds department since March 2010.
How long have you lived/worked in Cypress-Fairbanks?
My wife and I decided to move to Cypress from Kerrville, Texas, in March of 2010 to be close to our family.
Why are you so passionate about being a part of the Cypress-Fairbanks community?
I enjoy doing what I do for CFISD and particularly I value the relationships with CFISD people. For me, carrying out my responsibilities as an irrigator as best as I can for the CFISD community at large and specifically with those I work with daily is a personal requirement.
How has Cypress-Fairbanks ISD impacted you, your family or your business?
My wife and I have benefited by being a part of CFISD in two areas. First, directly, I am employed by CFISD. Secondly, indirectly, our two grandchildren attend CFISD schools — Ryan Andrew at Cypress Woods High School and Tyler Matthew at Spillane Middle School.
What piece of advice would you like to give to Cypress-Fairbanks ISD students?
Do not forget to be kind and polite, say “thank you,” “yes sir” and “no sir,” “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am.” Respect your teachers and yourself, read the Bible daily, put others before yourself, pick up after yourself and spend less time with your electronic devices and more time with your parents.
What’s your favorite thing to do, see, eat or experience in our community?
Without any doubt, my most enjoyable activity is centered with my wife and family while (to mention a few) worshiping, eating together and after-school activities with our grandsons. Being with family makes the most important memories.
