Our Mission

The Texas Center for Educator Excellence (TxCEE) invests in educators by implementing systems that maximize educator excellence, improve student achievement, align district resources, and provide training and support for instructional coaches as well as teacher and school leaders.

Graphic with "Texas Educator Excellence Model"

TxCEE’s Texas Educator Excellence Model (TEEM) encompasses eight components that, when combined, form a comprehensive educator support system that increases educator and student success. While districts address each of these components, TxCEE can help maximize resources and systems to leverage a singular component or the comprehensive TEEM.

Diagram of the TxCEE TEEM Model with these components: Leadership Pipelines; Data-Driven Instructional Support; High-quality Job-embedded Professional Development; Educator Mentoring and Support; Teacher Career Pathways; Educator Evaluation Systems; Recruiting, Retraining, and Rewarding High-Quality Educators; and Family, Community, and Educator Involvement.

SLO - Student Learning Objectives

TxCEE used research and lessons learned from a number of districts and states across the country to develop a Student Learning Objective (SLO) process. This process can be used to measure student growth in every classroom.

System for Effective Educator Development

SEED is a district-wide professional learning system that stems from school and district goals and uses collaborative learning efforts of educators to strengthen teacher quality, impacting classroom teaching and student achievement.

Texas Principal Residency Program

New principals receive intensive and individualized coaching, mentoring, training, and support to positively impact school culture, educator development, and student achievement. This approach also increases leadership skills.

Texas Teacher Residency Program
This mentoring program for new teachers helps them learn how to implement research-based practices yielding high results and provides customized support to help maximize the impact on student achievement in their classroom.
