All teachers seeking certification need to create an account with the Texas Education Agency. A TEA ID number is issued for each user upon creating an account.
Please check out this page from TEA on how to create a TEA ID number.
Teachers can begin creating their TEA ID numbers as soon as they receive their Welcome email. If you have already created a TEA ID number, you DO NOT need to create another account.
In order to begin the certification process, Teaching Excellence requires each teacher’s TEA ID number. The TEA ID number is used to formally admit teachers, approve content tests, track certification status, and more.
