Students all across East Texas are learning new concepts thanks to some extremely dedicated teachers. Our very talented teachers go way above and beyond to help their students reach their goals, but often they can feel underappreciated for the knowledge and help they're laying the foundation for.

Our East Texas teachers deserve to be recognized every day for the hard work they put in to help students who are eager to learn and help those who might be struggling or for being a mentor to so many students who are seeking someone to talk to.

Mix 93-1 and White Oak ISD are teaming up to recognize these outstanding teachers that you have nominated from school districts and universities across East Texas. Teachers are influencing and shaping the minds that will soon be running our cities, states, and nation.
