ESC19 Teacher of the Year Program
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 NINE Texas Teacher of the Year Awards!
We encourage you to watch our past winners' "Videos & Pictures" section and be inspired by these marvelous teachers' words and passion for education!
You can relive the excitement of our awards celebration on our YouTube Channel ESCRegion19 which was streamed LIVE on August 12, 2023 from the ESC19 Starlight Event Center. All regional teachers of the year were recognized, but only one elementary and one secondary teacher of the year will go on to represent our region at the state level.
