Houston ISD Teacher Earns We Teach Texas Fellow Scholarship
Nancy Ann Flores is Texas A&M University’s selection for the first-ever We Teach Texas Leadership Fellow Scholarship. Flores is a teacher specialist at Scroggins Elementary.
“Dedicated teachers like Nancy Ann Flores are working hard every day to enable students in our public schools to be successful and well prepared for their future,” said Elaine Mendoza, Chair of The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents. “The We Teach Texas Leadership Fellow Scholarship is how we recognize and invest in these educators to grow our own local talent.”
The idea behind the We Teach Texas Leadership Fellow Scholarship is simple: Find talented local teachers who are invested in their communities and groom them into academic and administrative leaders capable of guiding their local school districts to success, Mendoza said.
As a recipient of the We Teach Texas Leadership Fellow Scholarship, Flores will pursue a Master of Education degree in Educational Administration from Texas A&M University. She will also attend the chancellor’s conference, participate in an advisory committee and be a positive advocate for education.
Only one recipient was selected for the We Teach Texas Leadership Fellow Scholarship from each of the 11 Texas A&M University System campuses across the state.
The Texas A&M University System is ranked No. 1 in Texas in the production of initial educator certificates. The Texas A&M University System has been providing highly qualified teachers for Texas Schools for more than 100 years by encouraging consideration of teaching careers, growing the highest quality teacher and leadership programs, and providing ongoing quality support to boost retention in the field.
