Past Texas Teachers of the Year

Since 1969, the Texas State Teacher of the Year (TOY) program has honored excellence in classroom education and provided a forum to showcase many outstanding educators whose efforts and example have inspired their students, their colleagues and the communities they serve.

Texas Teacher of the Year is the highest honor that the State of Texas can bestow upon a teacher. Facilitated by TASA since 2011, the program continues to annually recognize and reward teachers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and excellence in teaching.
