Annually districts throughout Region 7 submit candidates for Regional Teacher of the Year after naming an Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year at the local level.
Region 7 ESC facilitates the selection of an Elementary and a Secondary Teacher of the Year to represent the region at the state level. The candidates are then submitted to Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) who facilitates the state selection. TASA selects two State finalists to compete at the national level.
