The Texas Classroom Teachers Association (TCTA) has announced a number of Lubbock ISD educators as statewide award recipients.
Robert Guerrero, principal of Hodges Elementary School, was named the 2008-09 Administrator of the Year in the Elementary School category, given to honor exemplary education leaders; Sandra Hancock, special education teacher at Harwell Elementary School, was named Leader of the Year, a new award given to honor exceptional service to CTA members and outstanding leadership; and Candace Tickle, first grade teacher at Waters Elementary School, was named Innovator of the Year, a new award to recognize unique, outstanding work that positively impacted students, faculty and/or the district.
All were selected based on nominations submitted by the Lubbock CTA, a local affiliate of the statewide TCTA. Founded in 1927, TCTA is an association for Texas teaching professionals and serves 50,000 members across the state.
TCTA will honor award winners in February in Austin, during the association's annual convention. Educators from across the state will participate in professional development seminars, elect TCTA leaders for statewide and district positions, review and vote on the association's 2009 legislative program and adopt policy positions on many current education issues.
