Is your district or charter home to the next Regional, Texas, or National Teacher of the Year?
Date Posted: 3/10/2022
The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) has announced that nominations are now open for the 2023 Texas Teacher of the Year Award.
Since 1957, Texas Teacher of the Year has been the highest honor the State of Texas can bestow upon teachers. The program annually recognizes and rewards teachers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in teaching.
The journey to this prestigious award begins at the local level: Each school district and charter operator may nominate two teachers—one elementary and one secondary educator—by completing the 2023 Texas Teacher of the Year application and providing all requested information to their regional ESC by June 2.
All district/charter nominees will advance to a regional competition coordinated by their ESC. The 40 regional winners (one elementary teacher and one secondary teacher for each region) will then become semifinalists for Texas Teacher of the Year. Six finalists will be chosen, and following an interview process, the Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year and Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year will be selected. One will represent the state in the National Teacher of the Year program. Be sure to review the nomination and selection information.
Is your district or charter home to the next Regional, Texas, or National Teacher of the Year? Submit your nominations today! Applications are due by June 2.
