TEA launches #IAmTXEd

Commissioner of Education Mike Morath announced Wednesday the official launch of #IAmTXEd, a new social media campaign intended to share the ongoing success stories of Texas teachers in the classroom, including from Presidio ISD.
The #IAmTXEd campaign collects and shares the stories of Texas educators whose work is leading to greater student outcomes and achievements. The social media posts are shared statewide each week via the Texas Education Agency Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The first #IAmTXEd stories have highlighted the work of educators in the Presidio, Duncanville, Lubbock and Northwest independent school districts. Their stories reached about 40,000 people via social media, a news release said.
TEA has solicited submissions to the #IAmTXEd campaign directly from school districts and charters and plans to publish stories from every region of the state. To see submissions and to learn more about the #IAmTXEd campaign, visit TEA on social media. For questions regarding the campaign or to submit a story, email IAmTXEd@tea.texas.gov.
