The Texas Teacher of the Year Program honors excellence in classroom education and provides a forum to showcase many outstanding educators whose efforts and example have inspired their students, their colleagues, and the communities they serve. At the campus level, Campus Teachers of the Year are selected by their peers. At the district level, the Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year are selected from the group of Campus Teachers of the Year by a selection committee chaired by ACISD Board President, Jack Wright. The most important criterion in evaluating nominees is their ability to inspire a love of learning in students of all backgrounds and abilities.
Congratulations to all the ACISD Teachers of the Year! Thank you for your inspiring service to the children of Aransas County.
