The district teacher of the year winners will have an opportunity to advance through the Region 6 Education Service Center as part of the selection process for the 2022 Texas Teacher of the Year. 

State winners serve as traveling ambassadors for public education with a demanding schedule of speeches, workshops, and presentations - all while continuing to teach in the classroom. It is indeed an honor to be chosen by one’s colleagues, peers, and campus as Teacher of the Year.  

In addition to recognizing employees from each campus for each of the categories, the district honored several retirees.
