Twenty-two teachers of the year from across our region competed in a rigorous process for the honor to represent our region at the state level. First, they were selected as campus teachers of the year, then selected to represent their district and in the ESC19 regional competition they went through panel interviews and submitted multiple essays as part of their applications. The winners will go on to compete for the Texas Teacher of the Year which will be announced in October. ESC Region 19 has had, so far, the honor of having 9 Texas State winners from our region compete nationally. Click to find out who won this year!
