About The Crystal Apple
For the last 19 years, TEA has endeavored to honor members who make our schools the centers of excellence for students and our community that they are.
This award celebrates teachers who demonstrate exemplary leadership, innovative teaching, and an active commitment to TEA's history of positive relationships and collaboration across the school district; schools should choose their winners with those qualities in mind, and from there an online form must be completed recounting the teacher's qualifications for the award - in addition to each school's chosen winner being honored at the event, one teacher from each level is chosen as a particularly qualified exemplar of the award and is give a cash prize as well.
