From Frenship ISD:

The Texas Association of School Administrators announced Tuesday that Jeremy Wagner, a science teacher at Frenship ISD's Heritage Middle School and the 2012 Region 17 Education Service Center Secondary Teacher of the Year, has been chosen as one of six finalists from across the state for the Texas Teacher of the Year.

Wagner was selected with two other secondary educators and three elementary educators out of the 40 regional Teachers of the Year from each of the state's 20 education service center areas. The finalists will now vie for the honor of being named Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year and Texas Secondary Teacher of the Year.

The finalists were selected by a panel of judges who represent the state's four teacher organizations. Those organizations include the Texas State Teachers Association, the Texas Classroom Teachers Association, the Texas chapter of the American Federation of Teachers, and The Association of Texas Professional Educators. The panel also included members from the 2012 Teacher of the Year finalists.

"I congratulate these six amazing teachers who inspire their students and their colleagues to excel, both in and out of the classroom," said Dr. Johnny Veselka, Texas Association of School Administrators Executive Director. "These six finalists represent the many dedicated teachers throughout the state who strive to make a difference."

Wagner will travel to Austin September 15 to interview before a judging panel which will determine the top elementary and secondary teacher. One of the top winners will also be selected to go forward to be considered for National Teacher of the Year honors. The Texas Elementary and Secondary Teachers of the Year, as well as all of the regional Teachers of the Year will be honored at a luncheon and awards ceremony on October 19 at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum.

Wagner is beginning his sixth year of service in Frenship I.S.D. as an eighth grade science teacher. He taught at Terra Vista Middle School from 2007 to 2011 before moving to Heritage Middle School when it opened in the fall of 2011.

Wagner has twice been named a Frenship campus Teacher of the Year; first in 2009 while teaching at Terra Vista and again in 2012 while at Heritage. He was recognized in July as the 2012 Region 17 Education Service Center Secondary Teacher of the Year.
