Two East Texas teachers receive the districts highest honor. Twenty-seven Tyler ISD teachers, one from each campus, were up for Elementary and Secondary Teacher of the Year awards.

The winner for Elementary Teacher of the Year, Special needs teacher Jana McWain of Dixie Elementary. Secondary Teacher of the Year, Math teacher, Brian Weaver of John Tyler High School.

"I feel really proud for my students, because they are going to be proud. That's going to inspire them and what more does a teacher want another tool to get his kids inspired," says Brian Weaver.

"It's such a wonderful way for me to say thank you for their support and acceptance of my students in their class. I'm just overwhelmed of how much their support means to me and I want to thank them for that," says Jana McWain.

Both say they can't wait to get back to their classrooms and tell their students about the award.
