TEEAC Credit Trainings
Teachers can receive credits for continuing professional education through the Texas Environmental Education Advisory Committee (TEEAC) by participating in training sessions or meetings offered by Texas Stream Team.
By completing all phases of a Texas Steam Team citizen scientist training, teachers will receive five hours of professional development credit. Teachers attending Texas Stream Team meetings or workshops, such as the annual partner meetings, may also receive three credit hours.
Teachers can receive five hours of TEEAC credit by attending any Texas Stream Team training listed on our Trainings and Programs page. The Texas Stream Team calendar has all the information needed to RSVP for the next upcoming training events. At the training, teachers will indicate on their training packet that they would like to receive TEEAC credit.
In addition to attending trainings, teachers can receive three hours of credit for each Texas Stream Team meeting or workshop attended by simply requesting a Texas Stream Team TEEAC certificate during or after the meeting.
After successfully completing all the phases of the Texas Stream Team training teachers will be emailed a Texas Stream Team TEEAC credits within a month of the training date.
If you are a teacher who has already completed a Texas Stream Team training and would like to receive a Texas Stream Team certificate with TEEAC certificate, email us at TxStreamTeam@txstate.edu that includes your name, phone number, and the location and approximate date at which you completed your training. Upon verification of your training, Texas Stream Team staff will send you a Texas Stream Team TEEAC certificate for the earned credits.
Originally established by the Texas Legislature to assist and advise the Commissioner of Education on environmental education, TEEAC offers a Certificate of Recognition to encourage teachers to learn more about the environment. In order to receive the Certificate of Recognition, TEEAC requires teachers to complete 45 hours of TEEAC endorsed instruction relating to environmental education.
After having completed 45 hours of TEEAC endorsed instruction - including Texas Stream Team training and/or meetings - TEEAC will send the teacher an Environmental Education Certificate. TEEAC will also send a letter of achievement to the teacher's principal and superintendent.
