Quest for Quality Exceptional Teacher Candidates

This initiative is designed to highlight what is done well by identifying outstanding junior, senior, and post-baccalaureate teacher candidates from all Texas universities. Universities will have the opportunity to review and nominate current teaching candidates that have demonstrated exceptional academic and instructional abilities. These teacher candidates, nominated by their universities, will be the vanguard for future Texas teacher candidates as they represent the ultimate goal of the Quest for Quality: exceptional teachers.

The Quest for Quality Exceptional Teacher Candidates program has been melded into the Clinical Teacher of the Year program of TDFE and the Intern of the Year program of TACA.
