ESC Region 19 Teacher of the Year
For nearly three decades ESC Region 19 has proudly presented the Teacher of the Year (TOY) program. ESC 19 annually showcases district teachers who have emerged as champions in their profession, and have impacted and inspired students to unforetold heights in all aspects of their lives. Our ESC 19 Teachers of the Year represent not only the best in their districts but are among the most consistently recognized as the best in Texas, having gone on to win five Texas Teacher of the Year Awards!
Each year ESC Region 19, in partnership with TFCU awards two finalists — one elementary and one secondary teacher — who will go on to represent our region at the Texas Teacher of the Year Event.
An Evening of Honors
The 2019-2020 ESC 19 Teacher of the Year "An Evening of Honors" will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019, 6:30 PM, at the ESC 19 Multi-Purpose Center, 11670 Chito Samaniego Dr, El Paso, TX 79936.
ESC 19 has always been a proud partner and advocate of our educators; committed to the highest standards in academic achievement and professional development for our students and educators. That is why we are privileged to continue our longstanding tradition of recognizing these most distinguished and devoted educators at an annual awards and celebration event. The exemplary teachers that are recognized have demonstrated such achievement, devotion, and unwavering faith in their students' success as to stand apart in their districts and be identified by their peers, and administrators as models of excellence in their classrooms and community. We also honor all of our district teachers out there who quietly devote their lives to inspiring our children with great humility and enthusiasm.
