Established in 2011, the Chancellor’s Academy of Teacher Educators honors individuals from Texas A&M System Universities who have made significant contributions to the field of teacher education and highlights the role of the A&M System in producing K-12 teachers for the state of Texas.
“On behalf of The Texas A&M System and the Chancellor’s Century Council, congratulations to all of tonight’s honorees and thank you for your service to this state and nation,” said Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp. “I have no doubt that the future will be brighter for it.”
Each year, university faculty, staff and students are invited to nominate any full-time faculty member who has had a significant impact on the preparation of teachers. Inductees are then selected by past Academy members.
Honorees receive a $1,000 stipend, provided by the Chancellor’s Century Council, a commemorative medallion and a certificate honoring their commitment and dedication to those who are teaching the next generation.
This year, 10 professors from members of the A&M System were honored.
