TxATE present three awards annually for outstanding contributions to the field of teacher education. 

Information on each award is listed below.


The Ben E. Coody Distinguished Service Award







Dr. Coody served as the last President of the Texas Association for Student Teaching before the association became the Texas Association of Teacher Educators in 1971. Shortly after completing his term as president, Dr. Coody met an untimely death in an automobile accident. He was respected for his high code of ethics, his professional zeal, and his sincerity of purpose.

This award honors others who have provided significant service to the organization.  Service to the profession through contributions to fieldwork or clinical practice is emphasized.

Guidelines for Selection of Recipient:

  1. Nominees should have made a significant contribution to TxATE and the education profession; specifically, service to student teaching and fieldwork.

  2. Nominations will be accepted from members of TxATE.

This award is presented annually at the CSOTTE conference.


The Ted Booker

Memorial Award


In 1971, Ted Booker, who had been President in 1969-1970 and was Dean of the College of Education at Texas Woman's University, suggested that TSCTE (predecessor of TxATE) use surplus funds to establish an award for an outstanding contribution in the field of teacher education. Because of his leadership in this area and his untimely death in 1971 due to a heart attack, the Ted Booker Memorial Award was established in April, 1972 at the TSCTE Spring Conference.

The first award was presented to L. Loyd Rogers in 1973.

Guidelines for Selection of Recipient:

  1. Nominees should have made a significant contribution in the area of teacher education; specifically, contributions in scholarship and policy.

This award is presented annually at the CSOTTE conference.
