Every fall, the Texas State Teacher of the Year Program honors 40 Regional Teachers of the Year, among which are two State Teachers of the Year — one in elementary education and one in secondary education — and four state finalists. These regional teachers represent each of the 20 Education Service Center regions in Texas.
An essay by Daniel Leija, the 2011 Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year, reminds us of the importance of all our Texas teachers.
The Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) now administers the Teacher of Teacher of the Year Program. Information about the program, current winners, and the application process can be found on the TASA website.
