Professors from across the Texas A&M system met Monday for the Sixth Annual Chancellor’s Summit on Texas Education. The three-day event focused on the work done by faculty members as they presented their evidence-based best practices in global education, special education, bilingual, and STEM education.

Ten educators from the College Station campus were in attendance. This year’s theme was IMPACT: Investing in Maximum Performance for A&M System Certified Teachers.

“Creating quality education is a tradition of the A&M System,” said Chancellor John Sharp. “In order to successfully meet the needs of the PK-12 students in Texas, IMPACT will invest in A&M System teacher candidates’ performance through intense initiatives that are grounded in research and global competency.”

The summit also included a speech by guest speaker and 2015 National Teacher of the Year recipient, Shanna Peeples. Peeples is a West Texas A&M graduate who currently teaches English at Palo Duro High School in Amarillo.
