Tracy Kriese

Eanes ISD
English 7
Austin

Middle School Teacher of the YearTracy Kriese seeks opportunities for her students to learn from the literature they read--literature that she chooses and that she helps them choose. She seeks opportunities for her students to find audiences in school and out of school. Several years ago she began a blog site for her students where they post their ideas in many genres and also respond to each other’s work. In addition to helping her students learn to share their work through the blog, Tracy has helped many other teachers in our district learn to use blogs with their students. 


Tracy brings her amazing knowledge of educational policy to TCTELA. She has made knowing about changes in policy one of her priorities, and that is why TCTELA has been fortunate to have her as the Chair of the Legislative Action Committee for the last couple of years. She takes time not only to know about these policies but also to voice her opinion through letters to legislators and editors.
