Do you know an extraordinary educator?

Educators at all levels share one thing in common. Their superhuman work too often goes unrewarded. At TCEA, we honor the work of these innovative and resourceful men and women do every day. One way we do this is through our annual Educator Awards and Scholarships. We traditionally present these awards alongside the TCEA Convention & Exposition each February.

“Winning this award has given me the inspiration to continue to work diligently to improve our processes within our department and hopefully make an even bigger impact with our technology at SCUCISD.”
