TEA Establishes #IAmTXEd Website

TEA establishes #IAmTXEd website
AUSTIN – Commissioner of Education Mike Morath today announced that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has established a website ( to feature all educator profiles published in the agency’s successful #IAmTXEd social media campaign.
Launched in December 2016, the #IAmTXEd campaign collects and shares the ongoing success stories of Texas educators whose work is leading to greater student outcomes and achievements. The social media posts are shared statewide each Thursday via the TEA’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts.
“Social media is a great avenue for quickly sharing stories that spotlight our teachers, but this website offers a place to view our ongoing collection of great work,” said Commissioner Morath. “There continues to be no shortage of great work taking place in classrooms across our state every school day.”
Stories from the campaign feature teachers providing rigorous and rewarding academic experiences; highlight the critical role that educators play in students’ lives; showcase teachers driving student achievement, a love of learning and personal growth; and/or exhibit instances in which educators go above and beyond to provide meaningful learning experiences for students.
Since the campaign’s launch, the published #IAmTXEd stories have highlighted the work of educators in almost 20 districts, including the Northwest, Lubbock, Duncanville, Presidio, Decatur, Amarillo, Port Aransas, Floresville, Socorro, Crosby, Cleburne, Kaufman, Cypress-Fairbanks, Comstock, New Braunfels, Athens and Rockwall independent school districts, as well as the Harris County Department of Education.
Their stories have reached approximately 300,000 people via social media to-date. 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.
Submitted stories should be approximately 300 words in length and include at least one high-resolution photograph that corresponds to the story. To see submissions and to learn more about the #IAmTXEd campaign, visit TEA on social media or online at
For questions regarding the campaign or to submit a story, please email
