AISD Teachers of Promise 2013-2014
April, 23 2014

While many school districts have programs which recognize and honor outstanding teachers each school year, the Austin Independent School District has created a unique program that recognizes the accomplishments of first year novice teachers.  This program, called Teachers of Promise, is designed to highlight promising classroom practices exhibited by first year teachers

and to recognize first year teachers who demonstrate an overall understanding of the components of good teaching and reveal outstanding potential as an educator.   In order to be eligible to be a Teacher of Promise, teachers must be:

  • A first year teaching professional who demonstrates an overall understanding of the components of good teaching
  • A first year teaching professional who reveals outstanding potential as an educator
  • A first year teaching professional who exhibits a strong commitment to the profession

The Region 13 Educator Certification Program is pleased to announce that twenty one (21) of our 13-14 teacher interns have been named as AISD Teachers of Promise.  We are very proud of these teachers and of the dedication to teaching excellence that they have shown during this school year.  We look forward to watching them develop into teacher leaders on their campuses.
