The Texas A&M University System honored 10 inductees to the 2018 Chancellor’s Academy of Teacher Educators.

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 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.
